Israeli Hipsters Need Keffiyehs Too…

March 28, 2010

Israeli Keffiyeh designed by Dveykus for Shemspeed

I have never been a fan of the popular hipster variations on keffiyehs.  Somehow picking a colored keffiyeh that coordinates with designer sneakers kind of diminishes the symbolic cultural and historical meaning the fabric holds for so many people.

And something tells me that this particular keffiyeh variant wouldn’t have come about if the traditional Arab keffiyeh wasn’t so popular.
