Mohamed Hadid has shared a photograph of himself wearing a face mask by Palestinian fashion designer, Noor Subeh.

The mask is made with keffiyeh fabric, the black-and-white checked cloth that is traditionally used for Arabian head dresses.

The Palestinian-American property developer tagged Subeh in the Instagram image and captioned it: "Stay safe for others to keep yourself safe from others."

Based in Los Angeles, Subeh runs her own company, Noor Alla Moda. She is relatively unknown in the fashion world and describes herself as a "fashion designer in the making". Subeh sells her masks through Instagram, telling potential customers to direct-message her to place an order.

Subeh has also shared a DIY mask tutorial on Instagram, in which she used an old checked shirt.

Hadid is father to models Bella, Gigi and Anwar Hadid. The siblings have spoken publicly about their pride in being from Palestine in the past, regularly sharing their favourite family recipes and traditions on social media.

Last month, Bella Hadid accused Instagram of bullying after it removed a story in which she said how proud she was of her father’s Palestinian heritage.

She shared an image of her father's long-expired US passport, which states his birthplace as Palestine. Shortly afterwards, she received a notification from the photo-sharing platform to say that the content went against its community guidelines on “harassment and bullying”.

The supermodel shared a screenshot of the removal notification, saying: “@Instagram exactly what part of me being proud of my father’s birthplace of Palestine is 'bullying, harassment, graphic or sexual nudity?'"

“Are we not allowed to be Palestinian on Instagram?" she added. "This, to me, is bullying.”

Instagram later said that they removed the photo on the grounds of privacy, as Hadid's passport number could be seen in the image.
