Official Shams Hirbawi Kufiya / Keffiyeh - Palestinian Scarf
Shams (الشمس) means sun in Arabic. Palestinians have the privilege of feeling the warmth of the sun for about 3390 hours per year. Thanks to this emmaculate climate, Palestine hosted one of the earliest human civilizations.
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.
