The keffiyeh or kufiya meaning from the city of Kufa also known as a ghutrah, shemagh, mashadah, chafiye or cemedani is a traditional Middle Eastern headdress fashioned from a square scarf usually made of cotton. It is typically worn by Arabs.

Millitary personel have also adopted the scarf and more recently it has become a world wide fashion statement which can not be missed in any wardrobe.

Wear it around your neck or use it to cover your head and face. A Palestinian scarf is the ultimate accessory for your style. Due to the large size of 110cm x 110cm it can be worn in different styles.

I'll stay away from the politics some people associate with this product, as it can get heated and this is not the forum for it. So on to the review:

I have tried out various Shemaghs (AKA Keffiyehs), and this one is by far the best one I've found in terms of design, quality and overall look.

The size of it is sufficient enough whether you wear it over your shoulders, around your neck or to cover your entire face and head (this comes in quite useful during a winter storm) or on a sub-zero night. The practical uses and ways to wear a Shemagh are endless; do yourself a favour and please read up on these and the meanings sometimes associated to Shemaghs, a simple search on wikipedia for shemagh or Keffiyeh will do.

For me, what sets this Shemagh apart from others is the aggressive design of it, it has by far the best combination of patterns (knitted not printed!) into it out of all the other ones I've seen; and when combined with the various shapes and sizes of the tassels on the sides give it a much more rugged look than the usual Shemagh found at most places.

Unlike most Shemaghs I've worn before, the fabric on this one is quite warm, so this will be much more useful during winter and autumn months, or if you live in colder climates, but can still be worn over your shoulders on summer nights.

Finally, and most importantly, whether you wear this for political, fashion or practical reasons, make sure you know what it is you are wearing and the symbolism attached to it.

Peace.

Zero stars for delivery time. Arrived within the very wide delivery date range - but a frustratingly long wait.

Happy with the product. The keffiyeh is fairly wide-weaved cotton, heavy, warm, colour as illustrated. Size about 100x110cm after washing/drying. Similar to the one I bought in Jordan years ago - it's as it should be, and is what I wanted.

Incorrect description: Arafat wore a black and white checked keffiyeh.

Don't believe the other reviews. This scarf is small, poor quality, and not what it pretends to be. It has a label "made in India" attached. It just about goes around my neck. It cannot cover neck and head. It is made with a very thin weave and is light and insubstantial. It will not keep you warm for a second. This is not the best Shemagh out there, it is in fact the worst. I have a real Shemagh and it is four times bigger than this one, it is made of heavy cotton, covers my head several times and goes around my neck with plenty of material to spare. Save your money for the real thing and don't buy this piece of utter rubbish. It's a complete rip off!.

I have in past purchased scarves of this type from 4 other suppliers here on Amazon and this scarf surpasses all other purchases. It is substantially heavier in weight and of excellent quality. It takes a little longer to receive but worth the wait.

Again, this seller has come up trumps: The best quality scarves of this type I have found online. They are the largest and thickest and the colours are WOVEN in, not printed. Really thick, soft pure cotton with a nice patter, Doesn't shrink when washed either! I want more, I've had 3 already!

Pros:
It's knit not printed
It's pretty good size

Cons:
It took a few weeks to get it in the UK
It's about average quality

The store seems to have a lot of unique stuff, but for an item like this, I would recommend ordering from somewhere local.

It is exactly what I wanted and is quite warm to wear. The only advice is don't wash it with other clothes and don't t wash it on anything higher than 30 degrees as the White was a little greyer once washed at 40. I have worn it a lot and it is often admired however the wearer should be aware of it's political connections.
