My first thought when i received it was it is not as in images.
I received my third Hirbawi shemagh today and disappointingly it was stained with oil. It smelled like oil, and the white was not nearly as brilliant as displayed in the amazon image. It was stained an off white. It was clearly in contact with machine oil during the manufacturing process, I presume. To add on top of that, the pattern was much more blue than white with the colors having been inverted. I gave the rating what I did because I've had great experience in the past and I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.
Stitching and threads began coming apart soon as I took it out of the bag. After having it for two days one of the two tassels fell off.
High quality product but has turpentine smell that wont come out.
Great quality and very fast shipping (to NYC), looks and feels great
