Due to soaring demand of the Hirbawi Kufiyas globally, please be advised of a average lead time of 3 months for fulfillment. This lead time applies across all Hirbawi distributors globally, the production output from the Hirbawi Factory is rotated amongst the authorised distributors to ensure fair distribution globally. Pre-Orders will be provided to the factory to manufacture, once the kufiya allocated to your order lands with us in Belfast - we will dispatch accordingly with fully tracked shipping.

*********************************

The design of this Kufiya found inspiration in the red and black beetle (Um Suleiman), which natural beauty left a big influence in Arabic culture. In paintings, and traditional and modern music (e.g. Tic Tic Um Suleiman from Fairuz) and in poetry.

And we honor the beetle with an original Kufiya, 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.
