Tracked orders, prior to handing over by regional delivery partners, are trackable via DHL, then subsequently via the regional delivery partners tracking.

Once dispatched, delivery takes a few days within the EU, up to 10 business days to the UK/Ireland, up to 20 business days to the USA, and up to 30 days to most countries.

If you choose “Standard Shipping with Tracking” you will receive a separate email once the package is dispatched with the tracking number of your order. 

Product Information

What seem like loose threads on the edges of the kufiya pattern are a common occurance with a kufiya, but these threads are nothing to worry about.

Such threads occur because during production, the ends of the pattern are trimmed by hand by one of our artisans.

Small ends of the threads may remain, but these can be easily picked and removed, or will naturally fall off when the kufiya is washed.

The Hirbawi kufiya is made of 85% organic cotton for a natural and breathable fabric, and 15% high quality synthetic thread that is used to help maintain the durability and shape of the kufiya. 

We typically recommend hand washing a kufiya to accomodate the delicate fabric. You may also machine wash at a delicate setting. We advise using a mild detergent, and to air dry the kufiya after washing.

The kufiya is a versatile headdress suited for both cold and warm weather conditions.

It may be used as a light scarf for warmth, and can alternatively keep you cool in hot climates under direct sunlight.

The kufiya offers effective shielding against dust and fast-blowing winds, and excellent moisture-wicking properties, directing sweat and moisture away from the skin.
