Often made of kente cloth or crocheted in a variety of yarns, kufis became popular fashion items throughout hip hop culture during the late-1980s/early-1990s.

The plain, white keffiyeh is most popular in the Gulf states, almost excluding any other style in Kuwait and Bahrain. The black-and-white keffiyeh is most popular in the Levant. The red-and-white keffiyeh is worn throughout these regions as well as in Somalia, but is most strongly associated with Jordan, where is it known as shmagh mhadab. …
