Redesign of the Takia - طاقية

I saw this advertisement in the last issue (No. 56 - Jan/Feb/March 2013) of "The HAT Magazine":

As an aside:
The takia - طاقية is the prayer cap (skullcap)
The koufiya -‏كوفية‎ is a square scarf, typically worn by Arab men.
The koufiya will be fixed on the head with an igal - عقال (agal), a black rope.
