The Hirbawi family runs the last remaining kufiya factory in Palestine, producing the recognizable iconic designs known all around the world today.

Yassar Hirbawi, who founded the factory in 1962, describes a daily struggle to keep the factory afloat, now facing strong competition from cheaper kufiya manufacturers overseas and an unstable political environment at home.

Designed by the Hirbawi family at the last standing factory in Palestine, each Kufiya is handmade using a specific cross-stitching honed over decades. Only a handful of people still hold the generational knowledge of this time-honoured technique, which can be easily felt by the quality of the Kufiya’s materials and stitching.

Home of the Nasraya (النَّاصِرَة)

Nazareth is the largest Palestinian Arab city inside Israel and one of the holiest Christian cities on earth, described as the childhood home of Jesus. Although according to the 1947 UN Partition plan the city was part of the Palestinian Arab state, it was conquered in 1948 by Israeli military.

Annexed by a foreign military, the people of Nazareth were forced to face the hardships of refugee displacement, land expropriation, and martial law, which included military curfews and travel restrictions imposed on Palestinians by Israel. In reaction, Nazareth became a center of Palestinian nationalism, a sentiment that continues to influence Nazareth’s political life today.
