A tribute to the spirit of Jerusalem, or Al Quds (القدس). The heart of hearts, and most prominent symbol of the Palestinian diaspora. Made with a light gold pattern and raw cotton base, the Al Quds kufiya is solemnly dedicated to one of the oldest and holiest cities in human existence.
The Kufiya continues to hold deep and symbolic value, and serves as an icon of resistance, struggle and freedom for the Palestinian people.
The Hirbawi Kufiyas are all handmade using a classic cross-stitching technique honed over generations. The Kufiya is traditionally woven on two layers, the “base”, and the “pattern” or “flower” ( وردة) in Arabic. Beyond its unmatched quality, the Kufiya maintains its original functionality:
The Kufiya now comes in a variety of colours and patterns that are evolving alongside Palestinian culture. Today, a wide selection of designs are available, based on historic landmarks, and elements of Palestinian culture, as well as the traditional staple Kufiya patterns that are known and loved around the world.
