How is a Keffiyeh tied?

Answer

A Keffiyeh is wrapped by folding it into a triangle, placing it over the head, pinching the fabric over the ear, wrapping the side around the front of the face and head and tucking it into itself; the second side is done the same way, but it is wrapped under the chin instead of around the face. When done correctly, the facial portion of the head wrap is able to be converted into a cover or put under the chin.

The Keffiyeh is typically white and black in color, and it is used as a traditional Arab head covering. This particular style is Yassir Arafat's trademark, and the wrap is meant to keep the sun out of the eyes and dirt out of the face.

According to CNN, the Keffiyeh can be a sign of political alliances. Black and white styles could be associated with Fatah, but red and white could be used to identify with Hamas; however, this isn't universal with Arabs or Palestinians.

The Keffiyeh is first and foremost a traditional cultural garment. Some say it represents pride in the Arabic heritage. It is also known as the Arab farmer's uniform, which means it may be used by those working in the fields or sandy areas.
