After the amazing portable pocket sejadah
(prayer mat) and prayer parka
, designer Meryem Chin and her husband, Mustafa Ursavas are back with two more revolutionary products for us ?
In case you aren't caught up, Meryem and Mustafa are Muslims who live in Japan where prayer spaces are uncommon and Muslims are scarce. Since facing these problems, the dynamic duo has been inspired to create everyday travel items to help Muslims all around the world. Their first two products were super portable prayer mats
that you can fold and keep inside your handbag, and a light and portable parka
so you can pray almost everywhere without worrying about having a telekung with you.
Next up, launching on the first day of Ramadan are two products that are super convenient for Muslim travellers! The Infinity Hijab and Wudhu Socks ?

The Infinity Hijab, also known as an 'instant
hijab' is breathable and beautifully designed for you to style it in any way without the fuss of a traditional hijab.

Don't have to worry about stray hairs anymore since the infinity scarf's specially designed silicon strips will help keep those pesky strands away. Not to forget that it's pin-free too meaning that you don't have to worry about poking yourself or panic when your hijab falls apart because the pins fell off. The hijab is held together by magnets and snap buttons instead ?
The infinity scarf is also nursing-friendly so you don't have to fumble around looking for a cloth to cover up. The magnet buttons will ensure you and your precious one are covered up nicely and once you're done, you can snap your hijab back into place!

Every infinity scarf also comes with a matching underscarf that also has the same magnetic technology to keep your outer hijab in place ?
The Infinity Hijab is now available for pre-order on Launchgood , so make sure to support their campaign to make the Infinity Hijab a reality! Do note that shipping only commences in September once production is complete. There is also an option for you
to donate an Infinity Hijab and underscarf to new Muslims in Tokyo Mosque ?

Another problem frequently faced by Muslim travellers is taking wudhu on-the-go. Not many countries have the amenities in public places for us to perform wudhu, and this becomes particularly awkward when you're trying to wash your feet in a public restroom - here's where Takva comes in.

Another new innovative Takva design are socks specially made for wudhu, or more specifically, to perform masah ? According to Muslim scholars, all footgear need to be able to satisfy three conditions before it is eligible for masah, which are:
- Water should not seep through the socks
- The sock must cover up to the ankles at all times
- They need to be durable enough to walk 3 miles without tearing
And Takva's wudhu socks satisfies all three conditions with its microporous membrane, 4-way stretch technology, and high resistance ?

odd positions trying to wash your feet in public restrooms - a big plus for travellers!
