3 Best Materials Used For Hijab

Most folks just think of Hijab as a simple piece of cloth that doesn't have any thought put into it. Even some women wearing it don’t consider the fact that they could customize their hijab head cover and make it stand out from the rest of their wardrobe. So, if you're also someone who's extremely keen on wearing something creative and comfortable, this post is for you. We're going to be reviewing three of the best hijab materials. These three fabrics are some of the best-selling materials out there for hijabs as well as our personal recommendation. 


When it comes to weight, Viscose is the lightest material out there. But, lightweight doesn’t mean that it's flimsy. The fabric is highly durable which makes the hijab so much more convenient to wear every single day. Viscose can be worn throughout the year; it doesn’t matter whether it's 110 degrees outside or -110, Viscose has you covered. Overall, it's the perfect material though you have to be a bit careful. For some reason, there are two versions of Viscose being sold in the market. One is soft and comfortable, while the other is slightly harder and stiff. It won't be a bad idea if you want to get a feel for the material before you actually purchase it.


Jersey is basically the one fabric you could wear to anything. This includes going to work daily, jogging and even attending business meetings; it's just that good. The material is pretty heavy and durable and doesn’t even need a pin or something to hold it down. Just throw it on and the weight itself will do the job of the pin. They're 'weather resistant' as well. You won't feel cold during the winter or hot in the summer.


If you're a woman that's into fancy and luxurious stuff, then Chiffon might just be the thing for you. Chiffon materials are silky and the only word we'd use to describe it would be elegant. Plain Chiffon looks amazing, but prints and designs really help the fabric stand out. They're good for work clothes as well as special occasions. Chiffon is slightly uncomfortable since you're going to have to make constant efforts to keep the hijab in place. They're pretty slippery considering the fact that they are silky. You could either pin it down firmly, or use a cotton headpiece below the scarf to add some friction. Chiffon is perfect for summer days as the porous materials allow air flow, however, that's the reason why you shouldn’t wear them during winter. You'll be way more cold than you expect.

Closing Thoughts

If we had to sum up the conversations, we'd say that materials for hijab scarfs are something that vary from person to person. We might love something but some of you might absolutely hate it. So, our advice is that you experiment around a bit and get a feel for various materials before you make the hijab set. There is a decent chance that you like something we forgot to mention…
