Hebron Walls

The Story

An Ancient City Divided (الخليل)

Hebron is a hauntingly beautiful, ancient city, twisted and torn by decades of unrest and conflict. The city is often described as a “microcosm” of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank. At the heart of Hebron is an illegal Zionist settlement area surrounded by Israeli military and checkpoints, barring Palestinians from entering areas of their own city. Israeli military even go as far as placing local residents under curfews, not allowing them to leave their homes, as part of the security program protecting the illegal settler population.

Much of the centre became a ghost town as Palestinians have shut up shop and moved out to escape Israeli checkpoints and conflict. And yet Hebron remains the largest hub of West Bank trade, generating roughly a third of the area’s gross domestic product, and a formidable manufacturing industry of limestone, pottery, glass, dairy, and ofcourse, Kufiyas. The bazaars of this old city have moulded the Hebronites into a widely-acclaimed, business savvy people.

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 Original Kufiya

Embroidered by Hand

For All Seasons

The beauty of the kufiya is that you can wear it however and wherever you want. If you are interested in ways to wear your kufiya, check out our “how to wear” video.

The kufiya can be worn by anyone in support of the Palestinian cause. In fact, Palestinians love to see people from around the world expressing support through this meaningful fabric. When you choose to wear a Kufiya made in Palestine, it means you are aware of its cultural significance and are benefiting its original community. Whereas, wearing an imitation just for fashion, without any connection to its roots, can be considered cultural appropriation.

Such threads may occur because during production, the ends of the pattern are trimmed by hand by one of our artisans. Small ends of the threads may remain, but these can be easily picked and removed, or will naturally fall off when the kufiya is washed.

Due to high demand, we allow one kufiya per order. However, you are welcome to add non-kufiya items to your order from the Palestinian artisans we support and promote, saving on shipping costs. See more Palestinian brands here.
