the.kufiya.project "At the peak of the Hirbawi Factory’s business – after the First Intifada in the late 1980s, according to his sons – the looms were operating 24 hours straight and producing upwards of 500 kufiyat a day, and 150,000 a year. While Palestine was banned from trade with the outside world, the kufiya solidified its status as an article of Palestinian nationalism and resistance against occupation. Domestic sales soared.

Today, those numbers are a great deal lower. After the Oslo Accords, trade opened up, but cheap imports flew in, three times cheaper than the Hirbawis make, and of much lower quality.

But Hirbawi’s looms are still alive, filling the Hirbawi shop shelves – onsite – and churning out kufiyat in a black and white pattern for Palestine, a red pattern for the Levant and colourful ones ‘for the tourists’, a bespectacled Joudeh Hirbawi says. Like the kufiya's defiant symbolism, the Hirbawi-made scarves refuse to be stamped out just yet." --------------------------------------------Don't forget our special #keffiyehday offer : 2 for only £15 (plus p&p)

  •   goodeyesniper83 @the.kufiya.project I would love to hear your thoughts on Westerners (specifically Americans) wearing your kufiyas. I am not Arab or Muslim, but I would love to be an ally and stand in solidarity with you. I want to do so in a way that is respectful and not appropriating your culture. 1w
  •   the.kufiya.project @goodeyesniper83 thank you for comment. The Kufiya Project was set up at a time when the Hirbawi factory was using only 2 of the 15 of the looms they own. This was due to the kufiya trend at the time set by celebrities and fashion brands, however instead of promoting the actual kufiya with its roots firmly in Arab (especially Palestinian) history, the fashion industry was promoting cheap imitations made in China and this was damaging an already struggling Palestinian economy. Even the tourist shops in Jerusalem were selling the cheap Chinese products. 😕 The aim of our project has always been to raise awareness and promote the real Kufiya not as a simple fashion accessory but also as a rich symbol of resistance and solidarity and to support the factory and promote Fairtrade. People who choose to buy the real deal - the Hirbawi kufiyas, do so because they are made in Palestine and because of what they represent. You don't have to be Arab or Muslim to buy or wear the Palestinian kufiya. It is a symbol of solidarity with Palestinians, you just have to care about the cause. Wearing the Kufiya is just a small way of showing support to the Palestinian cause. Learning about the situation in Palestine and spreading awareness is most important. 🏼️ 1w

gingerscompass Hebron: one of the most tense places of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Approx 200 Israeli settlers are living in Hebron nowadays. Since the second initifa (2000) the main street has become a 'ghost town' and minor acts of violance still happen on a daily basis. 6 checkpoints controlled by the Israeli army, many soldiers and walls divide the 2 sides. It was a very intense but interesting day trip.
