Keffiyeh in Summer Style
Whether you're celebrating the beginning of Summer or wishing it would come back sooner, embody the barbecues, sun, and stress free days of Summer with a Keffiyeh that shows off the colors of the sand, beach, sky and grass we associate with these carefree days. In this design, blues, greens, reds, yellow, and beige threads are all stitched onto a green and yellow fabric with white highlighting. It measures approximately 50 X 50 inches and weighs 0.43 pounds.
Customarily, keffiyehs are square scarves, made of cotton and occasionally wool. Today, they come in a large variety of colors and patterns. However, many of the classic Keffiyeh styles represent a specific cultures. The plain white Keffiyeh is most popular in the Arab Gulf states, red and white keffiyehs are a symbol of Jordanian culture, and the classic black and white Keffiyeh is a sign of Palestinian heritage and now solidarity.
