Keffiyeh

The keffiyeh is a traditional Arab headdress, made of a square of cloth that is folded and wrapped in various styles around the head. It is commonly worn in areas with arid climates as protection from direct sun exposure and blown dust and sand. The plain white keffiyeh is popular in the Gulf states, while the red-and-white keffiyeh is most strongly associated with what country? More...

if it's used as a protection why do they keep wearing it elsewhere? I mean in UK there's no sun risk at all. Does it have a religious meaning in any sort of way? Think

Sorry to disturb many, but the Arabs in this part of the Middle East do not wear kifiayas anymore. The young Arabs seem to prefer baseball caps, some imitating the stupid American custom of wearing it backwards to look 'cool'.

It is simply sick to associate this cultural dress and thus by default the entire arab people with terrorism. It is more unfortunate and ironic that the cousins of Arabs do so. It is an Arab cultural dress and is not associated with the religion of Islam. The prophet(pbuh) wore it but has no mention of it either in the Quran or the sunnah of the prophet as a religious attire.

Wow! ONE item of clothing is cultural appropriation!
Erm, try adopting some of the CULTURE of those who wear it.
Be mindful and guarding of family.
Be honorable.
Be honest.
Give a decent deal, considering the purchaser's status/money, in short, a hard won deal in negotiations over tea.
Have tea first with one you wish to negotiate with, to better know who you are negotiating with and perhaps, develop a friendship.
Just a FEW of the values from that culture, one can and indeed, some have, written honest books about that culture.
But, they DO respect age, as age shows one has gained experience. If the "experienced" is a fool, they'll learn and move on.
