Black and White Hirbawi® Kufiya

I’m so happy with my Black and White and my Red and White Kufiyas!

I ordered two kufiyas from the store, one black and white, and the other red and white. They took a while to get to me because I’m not in the US but use a US-based private courier to handle my correspondence. I digress.

The shopping process was painless. The delivery went as promised. The craftsmanship of the kufiyas is superb. I’m delighted to finally have them. The hand of the fabric is lovely. Heavier than I expected, owing to the quality of the weave. The patterns are beautiful up close. Have I mentioned how happy I am to finally have them?

I wholeheartedly recommend them. I’m already thinking of getting a few more as presents for my friends and family.

The real deal

As an Irish person living in Quebec I wanted to show my solidarity with the people of Palestine by buying from an authentic Palestinian business. Unfortunately Israel’s genocide in Gaza has rendered this quite difficult to say the least. I was delighted when I saw hirbawi has international partners. It is a top quality, real woven cotton kufiya, not one of those cheap prints on polyester often advertised on Facebook. Thank you hirbawi, and long live Palestine and the Palestinian people.

Is mise, le meas,

Cillian Breathnach.

Hirbawi Stories

The History and Significance of the Hirbawi Black and White Kufiya

The Kufiya as a Symbol of Livelihood

In Palestinian culture, the kufiya is designed to resemble a fishnet, symbolizing the livelihood of the Palestinian people. Historically, fishing was a crucial aspect of the Palestinian economy. However, it has declined significantly in recent years due to "increased security measures" by neighbouring states.

Representing Ancient Trade Routes

The lines cutting through the fishnet design represent the three trade routes that pass through Palestine. These routes have been in use since the times of the Old Testament, making them a significant part of the nation's history.

Emblem of Resilience

Finally, the olive leaves on the kufiya symbolize the strength and resilience of the Palestinian people. Olive trees have economic and cultural significance in Palestine, as they are resistant to drought and grow in poor soil conditions. The depiction of olive leaves on the kufiya serves as a reminder of the resilience of the Palestinian people.

The Hirbawi Black and White keffiyeh is just one example of the many kufiyas that feature these symbolic elements. Whether all three elements are included or only two, each kufiya serves as a symbol of the rich history and culture of Palestine.


In conclusion, the Hirbawi Black and White kufiya is much more than a simple headscarf. It represents the livelihood, trade, and resilience of the Palestinian people, making it a significant part of their cultural heritage.
