While the FIFA ban on headscarves probably won't be lifted anytime soon, it won't really matter if Muslim women start donning the Sports Hijab. Designed by Elham Seyed Javad of ResportOn, the Sports Hijab was created to let Muslim women compete at the highest level without having to sacrifice their modesty.
The Sports Hijab tucks into shirts and has a special pouch designed to hold hair. The material of the hijab is designed to absorb sweat faster, with a dry-rate 14 times faster than that of cotton hijabs. While I don't have an opinion one way or the other on headscarves in sports, it is nice to see a company creating a piece of much-needed sports wear for such a niche market.
