The Story

Colours of The Arabian Desert

The traditional red and white Kufiya used to be worn mainly by Bedouins in Palestinian and Jordanian North Arabian Desert. Later, during the second Intifada, the Red and White Kufiya became widely used by leftist Palestinian rebels in their fight for freedom.

Today it is still used by all Palestinians and activists around the world alike. It is however predominantly known as the “Jordanian” Kufiya, and beloved sister to the classic Palestinian Black & White pattern.

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.
