Today, many consider the Keffiyeh, also known as Ghutrah or Shemagh, a political symbol – sometimes even controversial. For Haled, this Bedouin man living in Wadi Rum, Jordan (and for many other Arabs) the Keffiyeh is still what it was traditionally meant to be – a piece of cloth to protect them from the sun, sand and dust in the dessert. This is one of its versions – there different ways you can wear it, and there are many color and textile variations.
