While Muslim hijabs
aren't a must-have accessory on every woman's shopping list, they are an everyday fashion item worn by millions of women around the world. And we found a small, L.A.-based brand doing something new with the cultural cover-up — Vela Scarves
makes beautiful, handmade hijabs inspired by what's happening on the runway, incorporating trends we all
love: lace, Victorian pleating, and yup, even zippers.
The sisters behind the brand Marwa Atik
and Tasneem Sabri
say they've teamed up to fill a void in the hijab market for the fashionable Muslim girl who doesn't want to wear her grandmother's scarves.
