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 Beautiful Game

Football is the people’s sport, the beautiful game, the game of the ignored, and disenfranchised. A sport loaded with gripping stories of salvation, where “nobodies” overcome their struggles through their passion for football, to become heroes of the home and team they represent. Legends like Pele, Maradona, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo Nazario, Zidane, Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo are renowned for their incredible talent, but also their uncanny ability to use their talent to champion the struggle of the people that they play for. Pele is Brazil and Santos. Diego Maradona is Argentina and Napoli.

No other sport has been more capable in breaking through destructive racial and political boundaries, or more effective in highlighting the struggles of everyday people. The struggle of Palestine is no different. For many decades, football teams and players globally have stood up for Palestinians, and brought attention to the plight of innocent people at the hands of apartheid. In the Gaza bombings of 2021 in which 66 Palestinian children were tragically murdered, few sights were as uplifting and heartening as when famous footballers and international fans would cheer, sing, and wave flags in defiant support for the rights and freedom of Palestinians.

In the bleakness of occupation, where poverty is rife and rights are stripped and trampled daily, the world powers have closed their eyes and turned their cheeks. While tourists travel to Doha to watch the games, Gazans are trapped under blockade, and Palestinians are denied visas. Palestinians have nowhere else to go but to the everyday people who will listen to them. And so it is with pride that we at Hirbawi dedicate the World Cup Kufiya to the people of the world. We thank you, for not forgetting us.
