The Shemagh (pronounced “schmog”) – also called a keffiyeh and ghutrah – originated in the Middle East.
Shemaghs/Keffiyehs and their designs are hot property in fashion industries all over the world. From Scandinavia to Germany to Japan, there has been a surprising surge in the demand for shemaghs/keffiyehs that has arguably only just begun. The new owners of these garments are growing rather than narrowing in racial diversity too.
The Shemagh/Keffiyeh can be worn in the summer and in the winter to protect you from heat or cold.
These Shemaghs/Keffiyehs are made from breathable cotton and very comfortable to wear, you can wear it for any occasion.
The common dimension is 47 x 47 inches, that is over 15 square feet definitely the biggest size on the market.
You can shape the Shemagh whichever shape you like for around the neck, shoulders, or head...you are in full control of the shape.
This garment has been known as a means of displaying cultural background, social status, and dates back before Moshe (Moses).
We find it best to hand wash the shemagh/keffiyeh with laundry soap in cold water and swish it or squeeze it but don't wring it. Then, place it in a towel so it will absorb the excess water and then hang it. (If you have to run it through a machine, use the gentle cycle).
