"The characteristic keffiyeh scarf is a combination of 3 patterns, each symbolizing different aspects from the region. The olive leaves (the zig zag pattern) represent strength, resilience and perseverance. The fishnet pattern represents affinity towards the sailors and the connection with the Mediterranean Sea. The bold stripe pattern represents trade routes, symbolizing a long history of merchants, travel and cultural exchange.
The Keffiyeh scarf has a fascinating history dating back to Sumerians and Babylonians in Mesopotamia. It is also known as a shemagh scarf, Arab scarf, Palestinian hatta, yamegh and igal. Wearing the shemagh has held many different meanings and uses over time, also depending on location and culture. The symbolic meaning, colour, and keffiyeh style vary from one country to another and even from one region to another."
