Keffiyeh

A traditional headdress of Arab men, made of a square of cloth ("scarf"), usually cotton, folded and wrapped in various styles around the head. It is commonly found in arid climate areas to provide protection from direct sun exposure.

Recently, men, like Joshua Jackson, and women, like Diane Kruger (left), have been seen wearing keffiyehs as fashion accessories.
