This Is the Crowdfunded Hijab of the Future
We all want to enjoy comfortable attire, whether it’s scorching hot outside or just one of those wet days. While most of us have high-tech options to keep cool and stay dry, a few products, like the hijab, have remained untouched… until now. A new project, launched by Veil, wants to offer hijab users that same comfort many of us enjoy. Veil looked high and low for the perfect fabric that could be used all year ’round, no matter the weather. The result? A new version of the hijab that might just revolutionize this headpiece altogether.
What makes this hijab unique is its water-repellent properties. The material rejects water, without allowing it to soak in. This will come in handy on those hot days when sweat just can’t be stopped. The awesome nylon fabric also blocks 80 percent of the sun’s rays. While wearing dark-colored fabric on hot days is almost impossible, this cool-and-dry technology is changing that. No matter which color you choose to wear, the hijab will keep your head seven to ten degrees cooler.
Most of us can only own a scarf for a year before it starts to unravel at the hem. Veil is also hoping to fix that problem by sealing the hijab’s edges with laser-cutting technology, instead of your regular cut and sew. Laser cutting keeps the hem nicely trimmed, comfortable and stylish. To top it off, the nylon fabric is also resistant to wrinkles, making it perfect for those on the go.
We love that Veil is anti-sweatshop and proudly makes their product here in the USA. There’s a ton of interest in the product — Veil’s Kickstarter campaign was fully funded, raising over $39,000. If you’d like to nab one of these, you can preorder them on Veil’s website.
