BOSHIES: Reinventing the Tarboosh

All of us love the enduring Tarboosh, an icon of conventional masculinity that was worn by Lebanon’s very personal first president, Bechara el Khoury in addition to Riad el Solh and several other Arab leaders corresponding to Egypt’s King Farouk and Gamal Abdel Nasser, nevertheless it’s not one thing you may put on every day. Actually, it stopped being a part of our each day put on greater than 50 years in the past.

That’s what Elias El Haddad and Diane Ferjane, founders of BOSHIES, are attempting to alter by reinventing the Tarboosh and turning it into a trendy hat for each women and men. The brand new Boshie hat is available in a number of colours with stripes to exchange the swinging tassel connected to the highest. Additionally they launched a winter assortment consisting of wool Beanies (Tarboosh Bonnet), Snoods and Scarves and it’s all 100% designed and made in Lebanon.

BOSHIES desires to “reinspire the Arab youth with fashionable takes on their cultural heritage”, which I consider is a good concept and their tackle the Tarboosh is a great one. Personally talking, I don’t see myself carrying the hat (or any hat for that sake), however I really like the beanie and I’m gonna order one.
