Taking functional fashion to new heights, Lebanese architect Salim al-Kadi exhibited his bulletproof keffiyeh design, the K29 Keffiyeh 001, at the Geek Express gallery in Beirut, Tuesday.

Al-Kadi’s new design, which premiered at the Beirut Design Week Festival, is made from Kevlar material and measures 114cm by 114cm (44.9in). Transporting Kevlar into Lebanon is legal without government permission but Al-Kadi smuggled the material into the country from the US. Kevlar itself is quite stiff, but becomes suppler with use, allowing him to process the material into the Keffiyeh.
