"The Arabian head scarf is known as the ghutrah, shemagh, but most commonly is referred to as the keffiyeh. It is commonly worn in arid regions; usually is made of cotton and features a distinctive woven check pattern that is believed to have originated in ancient Mesopotamia. This type of headdress was used by tribesmen since the middle ages, with various colors [patterns?] related to particular tribes.
Following the First World War it was adopted as a standard headdress among Arab soldiers in the British Armed Forces including the Palestine Police Force, The Transjordan Frontier Force, the Sudan Defence Force and the Arab Legion. Most of these Jordanian based units adopted the red-and-white pattern keffiyeh, which is the style that is still used by military unites of the Jordanian Armed Forces.
The keffiyeh became the symbol of Palestine nationalism during the 1936-1939 Arab Revolt, and gained prominence with the Palestinian resistance movement. The traditional Palestinian colors of black and white were worn by such notables as Yasser Arafat, but also associated with Fatah. The red and white colors were also adopted by Palestinian Marxists.”

It’s here its here its finally fucking here!
Not gonna lie, the craftsmanship isn’t great and though I custom ordered it, it was not made to size (speaking of the top in particular, it’s too small). It’s still pretty though and I paid way too much damn money and waited waaaay too damn long for this to arrive to not wear it. Argh, fuck it. Beach, here I come! #swimsuit #beach #fuckingfinally #shitty #bigboobproblems #bustygirlproblems #girlproblems #iamdisappoint #littlemermaid #bikini
