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

The Nabulsi Valley (نابلس)

A Palestinian commercial and cultural center, Nablus resides in a narrow valley as a crossroads between Damascus in the north, and Jerusalem in the south. Caravans carrying rice, spices, copper, cotton, oils, and famed Nabulsi soaps would pass through its trade routes. Nablus also sustained an elite class, fostering the development of a culture of “high cuisine”, well known throughout the Levant for its best known Nabulsi sweet; Kanafeh.

Today, Nablus’s historical roads have been cut by international borders, surrounded by illegal Israeli settlements the separation wall and a series of Israeli checkpoints. In audacious Nabulsi style, we nonetheless celebratethe rich, vibrant, living indigenous traditions of Nablus with this kufiya.
