Our Hijab Fabrics

Our hijabs are made from scratch with meticulous attention to quality and detail — you won't find our products anywhere else. Read on to learn more about the fabrics we carry at Haute Hijab and what makes them special.

Since 2010, our goal at Haute Hijab has been to create the hijabs and hijab accessories you always wished you had, or didn't know were possible. We develop our products from scratch and stand behind every detail, from choosing the right materials and finishing them to perfection, to selecting timeless and versatile colours and ensuring exceptional quality and durability. Inspired by our Islamic value of ihsaan, we believe hijab is a source of strength and pride and therefore deserves true care and intention. Each piece is crafted with you in mind and you won't find our products anywhere else. Above all, we want you to feel excited to put on your hijab — comfortable, confident and prepared for whatever the day has in store.

Jersey Deep Fig on Model Leanne Casual Styling

About Our Jersey

Jersey is a soft, stretchy, breathable, fully opaque fabric that's an exceptional choice for those who are new to hijab or who simply need an easy, fuss-free, yet polished option. The slight "grippiness" from the stretch means that jersey can be securely styled without an underscarf or pins, making it a true "go anywhere" hijab that you can simply throw on and forget.

The HH Difference

Our jersey has a soft, smooth feel with some substance to it — it's thicker than most of our fabrics, ensuring durability while still remaining breathable and light enough to wear in any season. The slight sheen on one side of the fabric adds a bit of extra polish to your look. Pearl-stitched hems finish the seams without adding any bulk, whether you fold the edge under or not. Most importantly, our high-quality weave uses tightly wound fibers that resist pilling and help keep its shape over time. Stretch fabrics are often more delicate than woven options, but with proper care, our jersey hijabs will far outlast similar ones on the market.

About Our Woven

Sustainably produced with bamboo fiber, bamboo wovens have a soft, airy feel that's similar to woven cotton. The bamboo fiber provides built-in 50 UPF sun protection as well as anti-bacterial properties, high breathability and moisture-wicking that makes it feel fresh and cool to the touch, making it an exceptional choice for hotter weather (although it can be worn in any season). Our bamboo fabric is opaque without folding and does not stretch. The lightness of the fabric makes it ideal for more voluminous hijab styles, and like jersey, it has a bit of "grip" to it that allows it to be worn securely without an underscarf and pins.

The HH Difference

One of the most unique features about our bamboo woven hijabs is that the fiber is mechanically processed (ie. extracted by hand), in contrast to chemical processing that uses chemical solvents to extract the fiber. The end result is a fabric that's extremely soft to wear, as well as softer on our manufacturing partners and the environment. It's also especially versatile, with a high-quality weave that's more durable than most other viscose, modal or cotton hijabs on the market.

About Our Chiffon

Chiffon is a light, airy, non-stretch fabric that's versatile enough for casual, professional or formal wear. It has a translucent weave that becomes opaque when folded over. Because of its lightness, it's an especially great option for when you want a sleeker, less bulky style or need a hijab that you can tuck into a turtleneck or high-collared shirt. Because it's a smooth fabric without stretch, you may prefer to wear it with an underscarf and/or magnetic pins to secure looser or draped styles. That said, certain styles — like CEO Melanie's favorite way to wear it — do just fine without an underscarf too.

The HH Difference

Chiffon's strong suit is its versatility! Its clean, crisp look can truly be worn for any occasion. Ours is also extremely durable, resists wrinkling, and will never fade or pill, making it an excellent option for busy professionals, travelers, or anyone who needs an extremely easy-care option. Many of our chiffon options make use of recycled or deadstock textiles for a more environmentally friendly choice.

Satin Why We Love It - model Garima wears Perfect Satin in Silver

About Our Satin

Satin is a high-shine, luxurious fabric that's an obvious choice for formal looks and also works well for professional wear or everyday glamour. Due to the smooth, shiny surface, this fabric is best worn with an underscarf and magnetic pins, or styled in more secure "tucked-in" styles rather than ones with loose drape.

The HH Difference

Our satin hijabs are meticulously finished with elegant baby hems for sleek styling. It has a hint of stretch that helps to mitigate the slipperiness inherent to this fabric. It is also extremely durable, resists wrinkling, and will never fade or pill, making it an excellent option for anyone who needs an extremely easy-care option. Its liquid-smooth surface is also an excellent choice for those with natural or textured hair that requires extra protection from friction, damage or moisture loss. (This is a benefit you can also achieve by wearing one of our type: entry-hyperlink id: VbF9p02dLfxkL0xBPaslX underneath any fabric.)

About Our Sport Hijabs

Our sport hijabs come in four different high-performance styles with a textile that's incredibly light, breathable, durable, dries quickly and won't get in the way of your workouts. Thoughtful designs allow you to customize your look according to your taste and workout style.

The HH Difference

Our sport hijabs are crafted from an innovative technical fabric that dries nearly 2x faster than cotton, absorbs 3x the odors and provides 5x the sun protection. It has been proven in lab tests to lower the skin temperature by 1-2℃. We also created multiple styles in order to suit a wide range of activity levels and personal preferences, with colors and design details that are meant to help you feel beautiful as well as comfortable and ready to slay your workout.

About Our Prints

Our limited-edition printed chiffon hijabs keep your hijab game fresh. They make it easy to create different outfits from the same wardrobe basics and add a pop of color to your day. Prints are like potato crisps — you can't stop at just one!

The HH Difference

We source our chiffon prints from deadstock fabrics, making them a more environmentally sustainable option. Like our solid chiffon hijabs, our chiffon prints are extremely durable, resist wrinkling, and will never fade or pill, making it an excellent option for busy professionals, travelers, or anyone who needs an extremely easy-care option. Because they are made in limited-edition quantities with new styles released every month, there's always something new to choose from.

About Our Woven Prints

Exclusive designs printed on our fan-favorite woven fabric with all the same benefits as our soft, sustainable woven solids. The bamboo fiber provides built-in 50 UPF sun protection as well as anti-bacterial properties, high breathability and moisture-wicking that makes it feel fresh and cool to the touch, making it an exceptional choice for hotter weather (although it can be worn in any season). Beautiful, timeless prints add a little extra punch to your wardrobe.

The HH Difference

Just like our woven solids, our woven prints are crafted from sustainably produced bamboo fiber that is extremely soft to wear and produced in a way that is better for both our manufacturing partners and the environment than conventional viscose. The high-quality weave and beautiful, timeless (and limited-edition!) prints add color and personality to any outfit.
