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. This kufiya is dedicated to the resilient residents of this camp.

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.
