PALESTINIAN SOLIDARITY

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:

  • Keeping you cool in hot climates under direct sunlight.
  • Effective shielding against dust and fast-blowing winds.
  • Excellent moisture-wicking properties, directing sweat and moisture away from the skin.
 

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.

The Story

An Ancient City Divided (الخليل)

Hebron is a hauntingly beautiful, ancient city, twisted and torn by decades of unrest and conflict. The city is often described as a “microcosm” of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank. At the heart of Hebron is an illegal Zionist settlement area surrounded by Israeli military and checkpoints, barring Palestinians from entering areas of their own city. Israeli military even go as far as placing local residents under curfews, not allowing them to leave their homes, as part of the security program protecting the illegal settler population.

Much of the centre became a ghost town as Palestinians have shut up shop and moved out to escape Israeli checkpoints and conflict. And yet Hebron remains the largest hub of West Bank trade, generating roughly a third of the area’s gross domestic product, and a formidable manufacturing industry of limestone, pottery, glass, dairy, and ofcourse, Kufiyas. The bazaars of this old city have moulded the Hebronites into a widely-acclaimed, business savvy people.
