How To Tie A Shemagh In 7 Easy Steps (Photos)

Posted by RSCo. Jewelry on

Shemaghs are something most people recognize at this point. Between their heritage in the Middle East, where they have been worn for centuries as protection from the sun and wind, to the modern day soldier who wears them for these same reasons when in the field, shemaghs have been popularized in both the fashion world as well as military-focused media in recent years. Also known as a keffiyeh, military scarf, or 'special forces' scarf, many people wear shemagh scarves as unique, eye catching accessories that are also functional in a variety of environments.  

Available in lightweight, soft cotton, nearly any fan of scarves will love wearing a shemagh, whether they're in the desert, in cold weather, in the city or anywhere in between. At RSCo., we offer shemaghs in four colors: desert rose, jungle green, sand beige (shown below), and desert tan. Our shemaghs in this blog post are 43-in. x 43-in. when unfolded.
