PALESTINIAN SOLIDARITY

The Keffiyeh (pronounced “Kufiya” in Palestine) continues to hold deep and symbolic value, and serves as an icon of resistance, struggle and freedom for the Palestinian people. 

The Hirbawi Keffiyeh is handmade using a classic cross-stitching technique honed over generations. The Keffiyeh is traditionally woven on two layers, the “base”, and the “pattern” or “flower” ( وردة) in Arabic. Beyond its unmatched quality, the Keffiyeh 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 Keffiyeh 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 Keffiyeh patterns that are known and loved around the world.

The Story

The Palestinian Metropolis (رام الله)

Once only a humble village, Ramallah today has become a leading center of Palestinian economic and policital activities. Booming at the turn of the 21st century, apartment buildings and hotels were erected.

Hundreds of Palestinian businessmen moved to Ramallah from East Jerusalem in hopes of seeking lower taxes, and to avoid Israeli curtailment of their businesses. Often acting as the centre of Palestinian governance, the city of Ramallah has evolved into a symbol of pride for Palestine.
