The new SisterHood jilbab ( is the result of Islamic Design House paying homage to the "Inspiring Change" theme for this year's International Women's Day on 8th March.

The SisterHood jilbab is part of the Spring 2014 collection of Silk Route Clothing, which is a label specialising in fusing modesty with fashion to suit the contemporary lifestyle needs of Muslim women.

Regarding the SisterHood jilbab, the Senior Marketer at Islamic Design House, Amin said, “This star piece really captures the essence of the Silk Route brand as we celebrate Sisterhood this International Women's Day. Whether it’s the speech, the actions or the way they dress, Muslim women always had it in them to inspire change through their Sisterhood, which is why the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day really resonates with the values of our customers."

The design itself embodies a gold embossed Route 01 logo on the arm and a red hood that cheekily dovetails with the name of the jilbab, SisterHood. It is available to buy from any Islamic Design House outlet or other stockist of Silk Route Clothing range of jilbabs.
