Kufi is a traditional African name for the Muslim hat or cap, which originally comes from the word for “crown.” However, Americans often use the word “kufi” more loosely to describe the hats worn by Muslims. In other parts of the world, this kufi cap is known as taqiyah or araqiyeh in Arabic, takke in Turkish, topi in Urdu and peci or kopiah in Indonesian and Malay.
Although this kufi cap is machine washable, we recommend washing them by hand with a small amount of gentle soap. Soak them in the soapy water for a few hours or overnight then rinse and hang to dry.
