With all the beautiful options to choose from here at Haute Hijab, I want to make sure you choose the fabric that's perfect for you and your lifestyle! Read (or watch) on to find out what hijab fabric is best for you, when to wear them and how to care for them to ensure you get the most out of your Haute Hijabs!
The fabric that started it all! Our signature chiffon is made of medium weight polyester and perfect for everyday use. The airy nature of chiffon makes it perfect for hotter weather and its elegant drape lends itself to effortless professional and formalwear looks. We recommend the use of an undercap, particularly under the wrap, to avoid slipping due to the smooth nature of chiffon.
Care instructions: Machine wash warm with like fabrics and colors. Tumble dry on low. For make-up or oil stains, spot treat with stain remover. No ironing needed.
Fabric content: 100% Polyester
Our premium jersey is a cult favorite and earned us the #KingofJersey title due to its perfect weight, stretch, size and quality. The best option for working out and for all things casual – think of it as your “go anywhere” hijab you can throw on and go! No undercap or pins needed for this perfect fabric. Stock up, you’ll want this essential in all the must-have colors.
Care instructions: Hand wash or machine wash warm only with other scarves in like colors. Tumble dry on low. For make-up or oil stains, spot treat with stain remover. Due to the nature of the stretch fabric it will shrink up in the wash. Once ironed, it’s as good as new!
Fabric content: 95% Viscose, 5% Lycra
Our superior viscose is made of a medium-weave rayon and feels beautifully soft to the touch. These wraps are great for everyday use and the styling options are endless with this versatile fabric. Our superior quality viscose will not pill after washing! Fold and put away immediately after use to avoid wrinkling. An undercap is recommended but not necessary.
Care instructions: Hand wash or machine wash warm only with other scarves in like colors. Wash dark colors alone to avoid any possible color bleeding. Tumble dry on low. For make-up or oil stains, spot treat with stain remover. Due to the nature of the woven fabric it will shrink up and need a warm iron.
Fabric content: 100% Rayon
Our Everyday Georgette is slightly thicker than our signature smooth chiffon, with a slight texture that adds structure and helps prevent slipping. The smooth drape, airy feel and non-slip texture makes them the perfect everyday hijab – and bonus, you don't need an underscarf to wear them. 
Care instructions: Machine wash your georgette hijabs in warm water with like fabrics and colors. Tumble dry on low. For make-up or oil stains, spot treat with stain remover. No ironing needed.
Fabric content: 100% Polyester
Our modal maxi wraps are made of heavy-weight rayon to make them extra durable and less prone to wrinkling. In our 'maxi' size, these wraps provide extra coverage and are the perfect hijabs for cooler weather. Whether it's a volumized or streamlined look you’re after, our modal maxi wraps are unsurpassed. This high-quality fabric does not pill after washing.
Care instructions: Hand wash or machine wash warm only with other scarves in like colors. Wash dark colors alone to avoid any possible color bleeding. Tumble dry on low. For make-up or oil stains, spot treat with stain remover. Warm iron as needed.
Fabric content: 100% Rayon
For millennia, silk has been renowned as one of nature's finest and most beautiful fabrics. Our light-as-air 6 momme silk chiffon has an exceptional luster and beautiful airiness that's perfect for hijab. Known as "nature's superthread," silk is ideal for those who prefer natural fibers. We recommend wearing your silk with an underscarf or in a non-slip hijab style to ensure it stays in place.
Care instructions: Safety pins are not recommended for silk hijabs as they may snag and create holes in this fine fabric. We recommend using the included hijab magnets, or a silk straight pin.
Dry-cleaning recommended. Alternatively, hand wash in cold or lukewarm water with mild detergent, and lay the hijab flat to dry. Iron the hijab on the reverse side of the fabric, ensuring the iron is on the lowest heat setting. Steam is not recommended as it may cause watermarks. Store your silk hijabs in a safe place free from insects and moisture.
Fabric content: 100% Silk
Smooth and shiny with a liquid drape, satin is perfect for formal looks or anything that calls for something a little extra special. Our satin hijabs come in a medium weight that never feels heavy. Due to the smooth and slippery nature of satin, we recommend the use of an underscarf or non-slip hijab style. 
Care instructions: Machine wash your satin hijabs in warm water with like fabrics and colors. Tumble dry on low. For make-up or oil stains, spot treat with stain remover. Iron on the lowest setting and on the matte side of the fabric – never the shiny side, as this can cause permanent damage.
Fabric content: 100% Polyester
Crafted with leading fabric technology for ultimate comfort, our Criss-Cross and Classic Underscarves are made of a beautifully soft, breathable jersey with built-in skincare benefits such as sun protection, moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial properties. A third style, the Barely There Underscarf, uses all-over poly net for lightest possible styling.
Care instructions: Machine wash on gentle cycle or handwash with mild detergent. Lay flat to dry. 
Fabric content: Criss-Cross & Classic (front): 95% Bamboo & 5% Lycra. Classic (back) and Barely There: 100% Polyester
