Trivia

  • The keffiyeh is a traditional Arab headdress fashioned from a square, usually cotton, scarf. It is commonly found in arid regions to provide protection from direct sun exposure, as well as protecting the mouth and eyes from blown dust and sand.
  • British Colonel T. E. Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia, was a well-known Western wearer of the keffiyeh. The Lawrence of Australia set is a reference to this.
