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.
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.

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.
