After reading through the reviews I think it's pretty clear the seller sources these Shemaghs from miltiple/various suppliers. I apparently got lucky. I have over a dozen shemaghs that I've picked up over the last 7 years from various websites, ebay, amazon, etc. And the Shemagh I received is one of the highest quality I own. It's thick, soft, and has a tight uniform weave. I have a feeling a lot of the sellers source these from various suppliers because all the reviews are hit and miss. Mine didn't have a made in China sticker on it like another review stated theirs had. The packaging was basic and there were no labels. I wouldn't hesitate to order more of these if I knew I was getting more of equal quality. I live in Utah and it's been hovering around 10 degrees F here. I've been wearing it around my neck and it keeps me very warm. I also have overly sensitive skin and haven't had any irritation issues. [Sensitive like I have to use special detergent, dove soap, be careful of what lotions I use, cant lay on the floor of anyones house, have to wash all store bought clothes and sheets before using/wearing them etc. Very sensitive]
I did wash it in my front load washer on a normal cycle with the rest of my clothes right when I received it. (I hung dried it btw)
Another reviewer said he got a rash on his forehead from wearing his before washing it first.
So I think with any Shemagh purchase it's a coin toss. I hope you get as lucky as I did, but chances are you wont. I placed my order late November 2016. So if you order camel/black right now you'll probably get a good one!
Would not recommend this item, but seller is not at fault.
Many people complain about how this isn't the thickest material, and the weave is bad so it falls apart easier, compared to professional middle eastern shemaghs. And heres the thing; there 100% correct.
The weave on this isn't good, and after very little use I can see the stitching already begin to come apart, and can tell it's begun to come apart. But it does exactly what it was advertised to do. The colors look great, and they do not fade. I got the product in prestine condition, with no rips or missing fabric. They wash and dry great, and don't need any special attention, which would be required for a "traditional" shemagh.
This is a mass produced item made for those that would like to own a piece of culture, or a nice looking fashion accessory. This IS NOT a traditionally made Shemagh with the purpose of sheltering you from the weather of a middle eastern desert; and never once was I left with that impression before buying it.
So again, yes this product has it's flaws. However, the price does not lie. This is not the best shemagh you can find; however it fulfills it's role perfectly. Do not be put off buying this item by reviewers that demand all items be perfect and traditional. This is not a $80 shemagh hand crafted by someone in Palestine. This item is exactly what it's supposed to be; And I recommend it to all.
Upon removal from the original package, I saw a few loose strings on the surface as well as a few inside the bag. The colors, although not as nice, I realized the material wasn't thick enough to hold a bold color as in the photo in the ad. It is colored, but the material is some what, see thru. Made from thin threads, the weave is looser than others I have owned in the past.
Thin yes, but still an attractive piece when layered. For the price, I am not sure of my expectations or what they should have been. I would have paid more for a better quality item. When used correctly and for the intended purpose, this wouldn't last very long in a sand storm. But for a added piece of fashion, or a outside trip to the park it is okay. I wouldn't add this piece to my possibles bag or bug out bag.
On the up side, it does look nice as a accent to another garment perhaps as a scarf. But for those looking to stretch this for a needs/purpose, I'd say this wasn't what you might expect in the functional use.
