Keffiyeh is an Arabian headdress or a cloth wrap. The material used is mostly cotton or linen because Keffiyeh is worn in very hot regions for sun protection. The cloth has a checkered pattern all over. The most common color scheme for Keffiyeh is red and white; however, different countries use different color schemes.
Keffiyeh can be worn like a turban, or it can hang down to the shoulders on the sides of the wearer’s head. When it hags down, it is kept in place two black ropes called an agal. Further, men sometimes wear a skull cap called taqiyah underneath, but at times, they simply put the keffiyeh scarf around their shoulders.
