Lululemon has taken a big step towards inclusion in its athletic wear by introducing a new line of performance hijabs designed for working out and playing sports.
Two workout hijabs have already been released and a third model is on the way later this year. The collection was launched on June 7, according to Women’s Health Magazine, which also notes that options for workout hijabs are extremely limited.
The headscarves are designed to be light-weight and breathable to maximize comfort during workouts. The hijabs don’t need to be used only for sport — they can also be a cool option to beat the summer heat.
