In Yemen, the keffiyeh is used extensively in both red-white and black-white pattern and in some traditional Yemeni designs and colours.

The keffiyeh is almost always of white cotton cloth, but many have a checkered pattern in red or black stitched into them.

The plain white keffiyeh is most popular in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf – in Kuwait and Bahrain, to the exclusion of almost any other style.

Some wearers wrap the keffiyeh into a turban, while others wear it loosely draped around the back and shoulders.

A taqiyah is sometimes worn underneath the keffiyeh; in the past, it has also been wrapped around the rim of a fez.
