Cover Story (view full-size image): This paper focuses on the relationship between clothing and identity, specifically, on Islamic dress as shaping the identity of Dutch Muslim women. How do these Dutch Muslim women shape their identity in a way that it is both Dutch and Muslim? Do they mix Dutch parameters into their Muslim identity while at the same time intersplicing Islamic principles into their Dutch sense of self? This study is based on two ethnographies conducted in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and combines insights taken from in-depth interviews with Dutch Muslim women and observations in gatherings from Quranic and religious studies, social gatherings, and one-time events, as well as observations in stores for Islamic fashion and museums in Amsterdam. This study takes as its theme clothing and identity and how Islamic clothing can be mobilized by Dutch Muslim women in service of identity formation. View this paper
