Niqab‘s been much revered as part of Islamic cultural appropriation. For the uninitiated, Niqab stands for face veil and in certain stricter codes of Islamic jurisprudence this part of clothing is also made compulsory in certain states. The face veil is fashioned on the face in a manner that it only leaves the eyes to be seen. The piece of fabric often extends from the head-gear i.e. hijab or forms a part of the cloak burqa/Abaya/jilbaya or may form an exclusive accessory on its own.
For women who do buy niqab online seem to have already developed a taste in knowing their personal style and hence it becomes easier for them to go the traditional route of retail. Just as with everything else, Niqab too, is open for self -expression as it’s with its popular counterparts like Chador, Abaya, jilbaya, Burqa and Hijabs. However, the simplest of its version could be found in the form of a band elastic string tie which is wound around the forehead to maintain a firm grip on the face.
With Ecommerce galloping its pace towards the end consumers, we women couldn’t be happier. Popular Niqabs which were once the cynosure of International Runways or boutiques in far away lands have now opened themselves to the overwhelming Muslim population by way of its online presence. Thus to buy fancy niqabs is no more an uphill task.
Amidst the different styles of Niqabs, women generally take to what naturally goes with their personal comfort. Be it the popular Arabic Niqabs with Nose cords or the Eyes only Full Face cover up Niqabs; we see, it has become much more easier to navigate, desire, customize and buy Niqabs for the modest Muslim women. Also, the other erstwhile popular Batula -form of face veil if it may be called so with quite a fandom with women of older generation too has been making a surprise trend from the vault. It’s a metal piece covering the nose bridge and extending to the back of the head. It’s some sort of a head-gear extending to mask the face. The metal varies with different regions.
