IKEA LAUNCHES OWN-BRAND HIJAB FOR MUSLIM STAFF

Juni 16, 2007

IKEA’s new Edmonton branch contacted TheHijabShop.com to design and produce a ‚hijab‘ – a Muslim headscarf – that would fit in with their current uniform.

When IKEA first approached TheHijabShop.com, their excited team was impressed that an internationally-acclaimed company like IKEA was making so much effort to accommodate Muslims in its workforce.

The challenge for the team was to create a hijab that had the IKEA branding; that was easy to put on without the need for pins – so avoiding any health and safety hazards; and that was something employees would feel comfortable wearing in a working environment, whether in the showroom or in the warehouse. It also had to be compact, without excess material flowing around, and meanwhile sticking to Islamic requirements.

After a few design ideas, the team decided to go with a two-piece hijab. The first piece acts as a cap covering the head, and the second fits over the cap to cover the neck, shoulder, and chest area.

The IKEA branding was added by using a navy blue coloured cloth, with a thin yellow line bordering the top of the cap and the edge of the bottom part of the hijab, finishing it off with the IKEA logo embroidered on the back.
