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 Hip Length model will reach the hip/upper thigh in the front and will reach slightly past the hips in the back (depending on your height). It 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 and is 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 - Hip 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)
