Hirbawi Kufiya – Original Palestinian product produced by Hirbawi – “the last kufiya factory in Palestine”, since 1961. Yasser Arafat used to wear a kufiya made by Hirbawi! Hirbawi was the first to create the Palestinian pattern to symbolize the Palestinian struggle: the middle pattern, with its “wire mesh fence” design represents the Israeli occupation, while the oblong-shaped patterns on the side represent olive leaves – a symbol of Palestine and peace.
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.
Hirbawi Kufiyas, our aim is to reverse the current trend and revive the local traditional production of the Palestinian scarves.

I ordered this as a gift for someone and I didn’t think it would arrive until much later, but the scarf arrived earlier than expected. I was quite surprised! It looks fantastic, very well made – no fabric flaws, no dye bleeds and no strange smells. To me, it was worth the chance I took to trust the seller (there were no reviews) and worth the price!

Very nice it is made of cotton but the trim is made of something else I think nylon but still very nice for the price and it’sactually being from Palestine which is pretty cool and it’s a bit on the thin side so you can wear in warmer weather

I’m a co-producer on a film called The Jim Crow Holocaust. When we were in need of multiple accurately made Palestinian Kufiyas we turned to Holyland Treasury. Not only was the quality great but the workmanship stood up beautifully on camera close ups. Thank you Assaf. We couldn’t have done it on time without your help.
If you want the real thing…..

This is the real deal. You will find no other keffiyeh made in the middle east these days. Most are made in Pakistan or China. You are helping a local industry in a small country preserve its heritage with a high-quality unique item. If you want to wear the real thing, this is what you need.

For anyone looking for a shemagh / kufiya and finding the products offered by other sellers too small and poorly made this will not disappoint It is authentic and provides enough material to wrap against the sun and wind. It has a tighter weave and better finish than the Black hawk shemagh. .
Fun for the cold and heat! Lots of diverse uses.

This scarf is really quite beautiful. It keeps me warm in a very cold office and it keeps the sun off of my neck and does not make me sweat. Here in the United States, it makes a very bold fashion statement.
Love it. Amazing beautiful large kufiya. I am happy with my purchase. 25 dollars well spent
