Our Essentials Khimar is designed with a slip-on face opening and has plenty of room in its width to modestly cover the body. The Knee Length model is designed knee or calf length in the back and will fall past the hips in the front (depending on your height). The khimar is traditionally worn as a hijab with an underscarf underneath but may also be worn as a cape (on the shoulders) with a separate hijab on top.
The khimar is made of premium quality Grand Crepe which has a smooth and slightly silky feel to it, allowing it to drape beautifully away from the body. The fabric is medium weight and non-transparent making it suitable for all seasons and not so light that it will easily blow around in the wind.
- The model in our images is 5'6" tall (167cm) and is wearing the Essentials Khimar - Knee Length over our Belle Umbrella Abaya (sold separately)
- The khimar does not have ties and needs to be worn with an underscarf to properly cover the hair. It is pictured worn with our Tube Underscarf (sold separately)
