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

Capital of the Galilee (صفد)

Legend has it that Safed was founded by a son of Noah after the Great Flood, the city today is surrounded by 70 villages that famous for olives, figs, grapes, and watermelon. Having once hosted a Mulsim, a Christian and a Jewish community, who fled from the Ibiric peninsula to Palestine, Safad was ethnically cleansed and colonised in 1948 following the massacres inflicted on Palestinians in the neighboring village of Ein Zayton. In our hearts, Safad remains as it once was; a vestige of peace and coexistence in Palestine.
