The Shami Kufiya is mainly used in Syria and other Arabic countries. However the ongoing war in Syria destroyed most Kufiya factories there. Today you have the possibility to buy this very special and heavy design - made in Palestine.
Abu Mohammad Hirbawi was searching for an old photo in a negative strip (before digital photography). He discovered a negative photo of a traditional black and white Kufiya. Inspiration ! He immediately sat down at his machine and designed an inverted Palestinian Kufiya. Here is the result.
P.S: Current model without grey stripes (as in 2nd photo). White shape on pure black background.
Why "either or"? This Kufiya is black, red and green on white background. Many wear this Kufiya to symbolize the Palestinian unity.
It is also practical, as you can fold it that your favorite color is highlighted.
Gaza is portrayed in the media as a place of violence, destruction and poverty. For the Palestinians, however, Gaza is known as the colorful city for its nice beaches, spicy food, fisher boats and the hospitality of its people. "Gazza Ard el-Izza" (the glorious city), it is how we call it warmly in Arabic.
The colors of this Kufiya depicts the Palestinian feeling towards Gaza.
"Amal" means hope. Amal is also the name of our customer, who has suggestion this combination of colours. We have tried it out and found it expressive. Therefore we decided to produce 160 pieces. Now available in limited edition.
What is a better colour to represent Bethlehem than blue? Blue sky almost all the year, the milk grotto with the blue stones, and the happy people with the warm welcome and open to all cultures. Thinking of Bethlehem, we have designed this Kufiya - As always Original made in Palestine by Hirbawi.
The design of this Kufiya found inspiration in the red and black beetle (Um Suleiman), which natural beauty left a big influence in Arabic culture. In paintings, and traditional and modern music (e.g. Tic Tic Um Suleiman from Fairuz) and in poetry.
And we honor the beetle with an original Kufiya, made in Palestine.
In an attempt to produce Alqauds Kufiya (s. above), we used the wrong yarn and this charming Kufiya was the result.
But as we refuse all kinds of political attempts to substitute Alquds (Jerusalem) with the city of Abu Dis, we will not accept it on ourselves to dub this Kufiya with the name Alquds. Instead, we call it Abu Dis. Named after an ancient Palestinian city located in close proximity to the city of Jerusalem. It is charming and beautiful, but clearly and in plain sight, Abu Dis is not our Alquds!
