An Unexpected Favorite

My first Hirbawi piece, I originally ordered because Mar Elias has a special place in my heart rather than for the color scheme, I don't wear many bright colors and I expected not to particularly aesthetically favor it. I was so wrong wow in person it's just gorgeous. It is a subtle almost pastel yellow The bold part pattern blue portion symbolizing the trade routes and merchants is almost a baby blue denim. The olive leaves and fishnet portion of the pattern is more a cornflower blue with a slightly brighter hue. Truly a remarkable piece, not to mention the quality and the added bonus that it had the scent of back home when I first opened it.

Beautiful soft & warm!

Received my absolutely gorgeous Mar Elias kufiya a week ago and haven’t gone without it since! It is so soft and surprisingly warm for such a lightweight fabric. I wear it for my daily pule (prayers), as well as errands & gatherings at home & in my community. I love it!

Amazing quality

I loved my kufiya colors, quality, and size. I loved that it’s coming from Palestine and the tag says made in Palestine ❤️ Delivery was in good time and unforeseen delay was well communicated.
