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.

Nazareth Town

The Story

Home of the Nasraya (النَّاصِرَة)

Nazareth is the largest Palestinian Arab city inside occupied Palestine 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.
