Once again, gotta hand it to the Turkish “tesettur” designers…they come up with the most interesting designs… Now there is instant party scarves and shals being sold on Turkish tesettur websites! So instead of having to spend a long time forming a fancy scarf style or paying someone to do it for you…you can just buy a pre-formed/styled one and snap it on.
From what I know about the trend for the specialty party scarves (I believe called abiye esarp) Its kind of a trend amongst Turkish hejab-wearing women to have a very fancy scarf made up to match their gown. Like so…
Or like this…I found this video on YouTube, actually its not such a difficult to do style and there are some “tips/tricks” for achieving the Turkish scarf style in it…can we say hairspray?
But, craftyness aside…the scarf company AİŞE, is producing a ready-made party scarf design AND shal design. I must say…quite neat. Ofcourse, you can get them via E-Tesettur (just be prepared for the extravagant shipping costs!)
One huge downside to these though is the utter lack of any chest coverage…it solely covers the head and neck and well, thats about it. But, one could remedy that by choosing a gown which can be accessorized by a coordinating shawl wrapped around the shoulders and bust when around the non-mahrams…
On the pre-formed shaylah (shal) front…they have these…actually…neat idea and you could indeed get some decent coverage from them if the ends are draped to achieve that.
Then there is this one which I found…its not on the e-tesettur website. Rather reminds me of a praire bonnet.
