Kufiyah Scarf: Hirbawi Textile Factory produces Kufiya, the iconic patterned scarves worn in the Middle East. The factory is “the only and the last” to produce Kufiyas in Palestine, says manager Abdul Hirbawi with some pride. Other countries in the Middle East where the Kufiya is popular, like Jordan or Syria, produce their own -slightly different- versions. Hirbawi is the only factory in Palestine producing the original Kufiya, which usually awaits sale in the factory’s small backroom shop.
