A Beirut-based architect has created a bullet resistant Kefiyyeh made out of “para-aramid synthetic fibre – otherwise known as Kevlar – which is used in body armor like bulletproof vests to help guard the wearer against ballistics and other weapons”. Al-Kadi’s scarf, the K29 Keffiyeh 001, was hand-embroidered by a woman living in Ain al-Hilweh and made its debut during Beirut Design Week.
I am not the expert here but if you get hit by a bullet, the scarf is not that thick to absorb the shock even if it’s bullet resistant so it might still kill you. In all cases, my guess is Kadi did it just for the fun of it and is not planning any production soon. It’s a pretty nice idea though and a fine execution.
PS: Let’s just hope terrorists won’t get inspired from that.
