Square Hijabs are most prominent in Turkey and are known to be so called the 'Turkish Style Hijab'.

This season sees the return of the Square Hijabs. They are elegant, easily styled and come in a variety of materials, patterns and sizes. Our best selling range is the Plain Square Hijabs and mainly in a Nanocrepe material. Our second most popular range is the Silky Square hijabs which are seen as classy and ideal for special occasions.

Square Hijabs are typically folded into a triangle and secured under your chin, with the two loose ends tied at the back of your neck. Some people refer to it as outdated and basic however at Arabesque we noticed it has made a comeback with an increase in requests for Square Hijabs Online.
