Nike set to launch ‘Pro Hi­jab’ next year

New Straits Times - - Business -

Nike said it will launch next year a head cov­er­ing for Mus­lim women, an ath­letic gar­ment it has dubbed the “Pro Hi­jab”. The com­pany joins a short list of de­sign­ers and ap­parel pur­vey­ors now mak­ing cloth­ing ex­pressly for Mus­lims, who com­prise a quar­ter of the global pop­u­la­tion. Nike last week re­leased a video show­ing fe­male ath­letes wear­ing the hi­jab, which bears a big “swoosh” — the com­pany logo — promi­nently on the side.
