Access 1.0 - Our first iteration under the Bourn directive, Access 1.0 is designed for easy ear access. Developed with the medical professional in mind, we heard the struggles of our doctors, nurses, and first responders. Stethoscopes and Hijabs haven’t been a match made in heaven. Until now.
This one-piece scarf is designed for life on-the-go, featuring four-way stretch, movement-minded Premium Jersey with small openings on either side to allow for the easy use of stethoscopes or earphones/earbuds. There is no need for under scarves or pins as this breathable piece has desirable length and is versatile in styling - throw on and go or style it how you want for more personalized looks! Hand-crafted for those going the extra mile, this scarf is ready to take on whatever the day throws your way.

Dimension: 65” x 26”

I usually don't like pre-sewn, slip-on jersey scarves because the fit my head oddly, but I really like the way this one fits - not too tight and doesn't squish my face. I only use the ear holes for ear buds and they work well. I love the concept and hope it works well for medical professionals.
Currently in school for paramedicine, I found it was difficult to put in my stethoscope quickly without getting fabric in the way, which is something that I needed to be able to do. So, in terms of using a stethoscope, it didn’t really work out for me. However, I think it could work really well for using earphones while working out (I haven’t tried this yet though).
In terms of the fabric, it was super comfortable so if anything, I’d probably purchase again just for that :)
Love the cloth. It is soft and stretchable. But the slits/opening for the ear piece are too small and not symmetrical to each other. Hard to find the holes when you are trying to put the stethoscope’s earpiece e on. If it is taking too long for me to locate it I give up looking for it and just slid the stethoscope under the cloth. Good thing that the cloth can be stretched.
As a nursing student I can say that this hijab is definitely a game changer. I don’t have to wear my hijab looser or expose anything just to put on my stethoscope. The material is very soft and breatheable and will do what it wants you to do. Kinda hard to sneak your stethoscope in at first but you get the hang of it!
Very comfortable and breathable!♥️
