At Modefywear, our hijab is designed in the Al-Amira style, a popular choice for sports hijabs. This style stands out as a one-piece, easy-on and easy-off garment. The Al-Amira hijab provides ample coverage, protecting the ears and neck while ensuring comfort and modesty. Because it offers full head and neck coverage, many non-Muslims wear this head covering if they will be spending long hours in the sun as it offers protection from the harsh UV rays.

Similarly, the Modefywear tichel (Hebrew for headcovering) is also designed as a single garment. 's made from performance fabrics that are fast drying, moisture-wicking, and breathable. It can be secured by tucking or tying it. It provides a lot of coverage for the ears and hair. This style of tichel can also be found worn by Muslim women as a turban, highlighting the interchangeability and universality of these head coverings.

Embracing these similarities showcases the beauty of modest clothing and fosters inclusivity within the sports community, empowering women to express their faith and cultural identity while engaging in active pursuits with comfort and style.
