Wearing SHUKR doesn't just make you look and feel good, it's actually good for your health! Here are 3 reasons why it's beneficial to wear SHUKR: 1. SHUKR clothing is loose. This means that it's breezy and non-constrictive, and helps you avoid preventable health problems like "tight jeans syndrome:"
Wearing tight clothes can compress a sensory nerve called the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve that runs from the abdomen through the thigh. The compression can cause numbness, tingling, and a burning pain in the legs above the knees, a condition called "meralgia paresthetica," also known as "tingling thigh syndrome" and now sometimes termed "tight jean syndrome."
2. We stock many items in natural fabrics with known health benefits. Especially famous for this is linen. Here are a few qualities of this fabric that are good for you:
  • ecologically-friendly (good for the environment)
  • hypoallergenic (good if you have allergies)
  • antibacterial (cleaner)
  • thermo-regulating (helps you stay cool or stay warm when you need)
  • anti-static (no static cling!)
  • gamma and solar radiation protection (filters out harmful rays)
  • high air permeability (breezy)
  • high heat conductivity (feels cool to the touch, and can withstand high temperatures.)

3. Modest clothing like SHUKR's helps to protect you from the harmful UV rays that cause skin cancer. According to the CDC, one of the best ways to prevent skin cancer is to wear "loose-fitting and long-sleeved clothing..." The blessed month of Ramadan is a great time to make healthy changes in your life, and this is one great way to proceed. What other benefits can you think of for modest dress?
