Tips for Choosing the Perfect Hijab Material

Chiffon? Georgette? Jersey? Cotton? How do you know which hijab material to choose, and which hijab will be best for your needs? Choosing the perfect hijab material will become oh-so-easy with this helpful guide. 

Chiffon Hijabs

Chiffon is a beautiful material made of 100% high quality polyester. Chiffon hijabs are light, have wonderful drape, and are perfect for making your outfit look clean and crisp. Our slightly textured chiffon hijabs mean they're non-slip for all day wear, and are worn best when paired with a cotton underscarf and hijab pin to insure you don't have to fix your hijab all day long. 

Chiffon hijabs are perfect for:

  • Any season
  • Occasion outfits or workwear
  • If you don't mind wearing an undercap
  • If you want more chest coverage

Hijab styles that work well:

  • Classic over the shoulder
  • The 'double-wrap' - pinned under the chin and wrapped around the head

Style tips:

  • Pair with a cotton underscarf for minimum slippage
  • Fold ¼ - ⅓ for increased opacity
  • Make use of hijab pins to keep in place all day

 

Georgette Hijabs

Georgette is a material that is very similar to chiffon, both being 100% high quality polyester and provide an elegant touch to any outfit. Our georgette hijabs are slightly thicker and more opaque than our chiffon hijabs, and have a unique 'crepe' texture to them which makes them ideal for every day or evening wear. 

Georgette hijabs are perfect for:

  • Any season
  • Every day or that outfit you've been saving to wear
  • If you don't mind wearing an underscarf
  • If you want more chest coverage

Hijab styles that work well:

  • Classic over the shoulder
  • The 'double-wrap' - pinned under the chin and wrapped around the head
  • Turban styles

Style tips:

  • Pair with a cotton underscarf for minimum slippage
  • Fold ¼ for increased opacity
  • Make use of hijab pins to keep in place all day

Cotton Hijabs

Our premium cotton crinkle hijabs are a blend of cotton and spandex, which make them super soft and the perfect every day "throw on" scarf. They require very minimal styling effort, can be worn without any pins and are perfect for those days you just need to run errands.

 

Cotton hijabs are perfect for:

  • Warmer seasons
  • Casual outfits
  • Sports, activities and swimming

Viscose Hijabs

Our premium pleated viscose hijabs are very similar to our cotton crinkle hijabs in the way that they can be worn and the coverage they provide. They are perfect for adding some texture to your outfits and are just as easy to throw on and wear as our cotton hijabs.

  • Warmer seasons

Jersey Hijabs

Jersey hijabs are definitely a hijabi's favorite. They are typically a mix of either polyester/spandex, or cotton/spandex. They are medium weight, provide excellent coverage and can be styled in so many ways. The stretchy fabric allows for easy movement especially if you're active or playing any sports. This is the most ideal hijab fabric if you're looking for a non-slip all day hijab.
