BOLD STATEMENT SHEMAGH
~ What ~
Made of 100% Cotton, this authentic keffiyeh with seamed edges measures 47 inches square. Available in 11 designs, it usually has colored designs of white, tan, brown, and black with 4-inch ball tassels on the corners and ¾ inch ties on the edges. It is recommended to be hand washed in cold water and air dried or dry cleaned.
~ Why ~
I like the over-sized largeness of this one because it can be wrapped around the neck to keep warm. Its soft material is not too thick or see-through. Its purpose is for military solidarity for Palestine, but males and females may wear it as a decorative garment. I like that tying and care instructions are included.
~ Why Not ~
Some may not want to wear a keffiyeh that promotes Palestine solidarity, but I was assured it can be used to accent clothing and has no propaganda icons on it. Others may insist it is to be worn by men only, but I asked and was told women could wear it too. I noticed the fabric has the potential to snag, and some of the decorative design stitching is a little loose.
~ Wish ~
I wish the online site mentioned it is not only to promote Palestine and women can wear it too.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for an oversized authentic shemagh, this may be a good purchase.
Thanks to Mora for this discounted item that I am evaluating by choice.
