The now widely popular Abu Dis (أبو ديس) is in fact, one of the few kufiyas that originated by accident. When the Hirbawi factory used the wrong yarn to produce the Al Quds (Jerusalem) Kufiya. Instead, this charming golden Kufiya was the result. Dedicated to the ancient village, Abu Dis borders the city Jeruselam. A neighbour both geographically, and in colour.

Description

The now widely popular Abu Dis (أبو ديس) is in fact, one of the few kufiyas that originated by accident. When the Hirbawi factory used the wrong yarn to produce the Al Quds (Jerusalem) Kufiya. Instead, this charming golden Kufiya was the result. Dedicated to the ancient village, Abu Dis borders the city Jeruselam. A neighbour both geographically, and in colour.

Hirbawi is the last kufiya (or keffiyeh) factory in Palestine.  Today they struggle to compete with cheap imported Kufiya from China, though the quality of the original, handmade in Palestine kufiyas is far superior. By trading the Hirbawi Kufiyas, our aim is to reverse the current trend and revive the local traditional production of the Palestinian scarves.

Every purchase from Hadeel supports Palestinian handcrafters and artisans.
