Hirbawi is announcing the Palestine Embroidered Kufiya on the 18th anniversary of the passing of Yasser Arafat (11th Nov), Palestine’s most renowned and influential political leader. The Kufiya not only speaks of the years of injustices and struggles that the Palestinians have gone through, but also of the resilience, strength and faith that the Palestinians have in their hearts. This is what allowed them to continue battling for their freedom, liberation, and identity since the Nakba in 1948.
Palestinians, in Palestine and the diaspora, have fought to keep their Palestinian flag raised high to show the whole world that the Palestinians never give up or surrender. Palestine is their homeland and their right, and no form of occupation, no matter how strong, can take it away from them.
Yasser Arafat was an icon and an inspiration to all Palestinians and revolutionists. He was the leader of the Palestinian revolution and devoted his life to the Palestinian liberation. He was successful in making the Palestinian cause a major issue in the global public opinion and in forming the Palestinian national identity. Arafat continued to fight for his people’s independence until his last breath. He died on November 11th, 2004, from a sudden illness after 3 years of Israeli military siege in Ramallah. The cause of his death, and the possibility of his poisoning is global controversy to this day.
Just like Yasser Arafat, the Palestinians never stopped battling for their freedom, liberation, and identity since the Nakba in 1948. They have fought to keep their Palestinian flag raised high to show the whole world that the Palestinians never give up or surrender and that they are proud of their country and identity.
Our Palestine Embroidered Hirbawi Kufiya is dedicated to Palestinian figures like Yasser Arafat’s, and to the legacy, the struggle for sovereignty, and the strength and bravery of all the Palestinians around the globe.
