The Nike Pro Hijab has been named the ‘most important’ design of the year.
When Nike unveiled its first high-performance hijab earlier this year, the announcement was met with a very mixed reaction.
While many applauded the sportswear giant for recognising the needs of Muslim sportswomen, others accused the brand of “cashing in” on a “symbol of oppression”.
One thing is for sure – it’s one of the year’s most talked-about products. And now, it’s been named the most important design of 2017.
The Nike Pro Hijab won the General Excellence category in the Innovation By Design Awards, run by Fast Company magazine.
