The article explains that this 'burkini' swimsuit for conservative Muslim women leaves only the hands, the feet and the face uncovered. Made of polyester it's designed by Australian citizen Aheda Zanetti. Designer Zanetti hopes to introduce the burkini (burqini) to Islamic women customers in the United States, Europe and the Middle East. "I've saved my wife and female children from staring eyes of strangers on the beach," Zanetti said. Burkini swimwear for religious Muslim women will be on sale on the Internet for 300 YTL (214 USD$).

Western critics of the 'Burkini' swimsuit say it's another manifestation of militant Islam on the march --
in the same league with the
Türban (turban) for conservative Muslim women in Turkey.
