It's Time for Change.

For years now, athletic apparel companies have been producing weather performance clothing to help athletes in brutal weather conditions. Firemen are equipped with high-tech gear that fights off heat and allows for breatheability in the worst of conditions. Astronauts wear suits that protect them in the extreme conditions of outer space. Technology in clothing is changing the apparel industry forever, and we believe that women who wear the headscarf need it too.


Introducing:

The exterior of the scarf is composed of a durable water repellent that simply keeps your hijab dry at all times when it rains. This technology causes water to bead up upon impact, preventing it from making its way through the fabric. It’s a rainy day’s worst nightmare.

We tested our rainproof technology out. Water literally rolls off of the fabric instead of being absorbed.

This cooling technology literally reflects sunlight off the surface of the fabric. It provides effective protection from heating up caused by contact with sunlight. Ordinary dark colored fabrics absorb up to 90% of heat rays and warm up consequently. Our technology, on the other hand, reflects up to 80% of heat rays and keeps the fabrics up to 7-10 degrees (Fahrenheit) cooler. As a result, your hijab remains substantially cooler, delivering extra comfort.

Optimal heat protection. Stay cool to the touch.

Instead of the usual ‘cut & sew’ method, we decided to team up with a brilliant laser cutting company. Lasers seal the edges of the fabric giving our hijabs a sharp, clean, and accurate cut every single time. This keeps comfort at an optimal level and keeps chafing virtually non-existent compared to ordinary hemmed hijabs.

Using lasers to cut our fabric results in sharp and sealed edges.

Oil, food, soil, and liquids can often come in contact with our apparel in our daily activities, and usually leave stains which can be hard to get rid of. Our fabric has excellent oil repellency, greatly improves stain release when washing, and reduces the absorption of stain and soil marks.

Our previous dimensions were 63 inches in length by 17 inches in width. We received alot of feedback to make our scarves a bit wider, so we're adding 7 extra inches to the width! (At no additional cost of course, because we love you all)

Our Story & Journey

The idea for Veil came to life a couple of years ago. We discovered apparel companies that used climate technology to create business shirts specifically for business people on the go. Business people who spend long hours in commute and walk a few blocks in the muggy hot weather to get to their next meeting.
That's when it all clicked. Women who wear the hijab need this technology too, and they need it now.
For two years now, we have been building a team of manufacturers to help Veil come to life. We traveled across the country to meet with one of the most advanced and high-tech fabric companies in the industry, as well as a laser cutting company to give our scarves the edge in comfort. Countless months, weeks, days, and hours have been put in to finally see the outcome.
Veil promises to bring innovation and continue to revolutionize the way women wear the hijab. We are committed to building a culture of world-changing, innovating, and limitless creations that will change the way we see the hijab.

More light is absorbed by darker fabrics, resulting in a hotter outfit for the wearer. Our cooling technology is specialized specifically for darker fabrics, which is why it can block out 7-10 degrees Fahrenheit in our black fabric. With our two newest colors, silver lake blue and bright white, you will stay cooler than a black fabric regardless. The cooling effect will be a little less noticeable but the UV protection will remain in full effect.

Made in the USA

We don't support clothing and apparel produced in sweatshops to get cheaper costs, period. Everything manufactured, from our fabric to packaging to labels, come from the biggest companies in the country in their niche. All the labor, from the cutting to label sewing, is handled by proud business owners in Ohio. Check out the map below to see where everything comes from.

Risks and challenges

For the last two years we have been searching and searching for only the best manufacturers to help us produce these scarves. Now, we have them all lined up waiting until we give them the green light to go ahead and fire up the engines.

The fabric company we are teaming up with is one of the baddest in business. From its inception in 1989, they have quickly built up to become one of the largest and most technologically advanced knitting mills in the country. The only downside is.. the minimum order. We have to place a minimum order of 4 figure yardage to get the mills going, and we want to see how the demand holds up. The technicality of our product will also create a longer production time. From the mills shipping the fabric to the cutting company, and having the labels sewn on each scarf. The total completion time can range anywhere from 7-12 weeks. Depending on the amount of pledges we receive, this number can change at any given moment. It is 100% our goal to get the rewards into your hands by August.

At Veil, we won't settle for anything less than perfect, and we will make sure we produce only the highest quality hijabs ever made. That being said, we will constantly keep you updated, whether good news or bad. Your pledge is the beginning of something great, and you are part of it.
