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

The Sea of Galilee (بحيرة طبريا)

According to the New Testament, it is in Lake Tabariya that Jesus walked on water, calmed the storm, and fed the multitude. On its western shore, the city of Tiberies had been made up of a Jewish Palestinian majority for years. Relationships between Arab and Jewish communities in Tiberias were good. Yet the inception of the British Mandate (1922) British and Zionist colonial interestes tarnished old bonds between former neighbours.
