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.
The traditional Palestinian scarf is known as Kufiya, Keffiyeh or Hatta. Unfortunately, the local manufacturing of the symbol of the Palestinian struggle for freedom is vanishing as most Kufiyas sold around the world and even in Palestine are made in China or India. Today, only one factory remains in Palestine: The Hirbawi family in Hebron continues to weave the only original Kufiya made in Palestine.
Abuwear.com has now joined kufiya.org's effort to save Palestine's last kufiyas production factory. By trading the Hirbawi Kufiyas, our aim is to reverse the current trend and revive the local traditional production of the Palestinian scarves.
