Dheisheh is one of three Palestinian refugee camps in Bethlehem. First created in 1949 to accommodate displaced Palestinians from more than 45 villages west of Jerusalem. The people of Dheisheh are very special. Despite poor living conditions, they have a very high level of education, they are resistant, resilient, and good-humored. To them, we dedicate this energetic, elegant, and vibrant design.

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.
