No matter how you feel about multi-billion companies like Nike dominating the markets, you have to admit that it is inspiring to see they are starting to blend with the Western world and all kinds of other cultures. The latest example of expansion like this was when Mattel released their first Barbie that wears a hijab. She was modeled after Ibtihaj Muhammad who is a Muslim Olympic fencer. Muhammad described the doll as simply "amazing."

Here you can see Muslim-Olympic fencer, Ibtihaj Muhammad posing with the very first Barbie to wear a hijab. As you can see she is just as beautiful as any other Barbie doll. The fencer says that the new toy is amazing. The introduction of products like this is great for gaining footing in other markets such as the Middle East and with Muslim populated nations. The show of inclusion to the Muslim community is quite powerful and heartwarming.

Back in February, Nike Middle East introduced their first breathable, athletic hijab. It is comfortable, functional, and practical allowing Muslim women to also take part in sports activities. The item was not made available in the US until now.
