Let me take you a little step into my Hijab buying habits....I rarely buy hijabs from online Islamic retailers. If I do buy them online, it is always from nordstroms because they have exceptional quality (though a bit pricey) and they always display scarf measurements, which sometimes Islamic companies fail to do.
Well, not too long ago I found a little gem on Facebook known as Amirah Couture. The first thing I noticed about their Facebook page, is that not only does it feature beautiful photography, but they sold hijabs and abayat inspired by the Arab spring countries such as Palestine, Syria, and Egypt!
Check out their Freedom Collection! The Proceeds from their items go directly as sadaqa for the countries they represent! So creative mashallah!

Mashallah. I hope other Islamic companies adopts their example and makes charity and community service an important part of their business model as well."A clothing line where modesty meets modern fashion; with a flare of lively philanthropy - that's Amirah Couture. Stylish designs. Conscious virtue. And a commitment to helping others. Every purchase will not only satisfy your tastes and your faith - but will also send one girl to school in the Greater Middle East."

I fell in love with their photos of the Safari hijab because it looked like it was made for me! I loved the hints of peacock blue and the safari prints and the mixture of color. Because the material was on a model in a clear well-lit photo, I felt that it would be the right size for my hijab style.

Alhamdoolilah it came EXTREMELY quick. I almost didn't believe it would arrive that fast! My sis received the package before I did and opened it. Her and her coworker both admired the hijab as soon as she removed it from its package. It seemed a bit darker in tint than the photos but the more I wore it, the more I fell in love with it.
The fabric was high quality. The colors were vibrant and it had a workable drape on the head. The best part of this scarf is how versatile it is, just by moving the material along my forehead I can create more than one look with the different patterns.
