Muslim Chic from Urban Outfitters
This is pretty unbelievable. A leather and rope bracelet with allah الله inscribed in Arabic. What is Urban Outfitters up to? First the kufiya, and now this? Is Islamic style really becoming chic?
Except that, the item is no longer available. Were their protests? I don't know. (I learned about this from Kabobfest awhile back. But no harm in recycling, is there?)
(And in the back of my mind, I'm hearing an objection. Allah in Arabic just means God. When Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews speak of God, they use the same word.)
When you could get it, the bracelet cost $8.
