"Saoirse" is the Irish word for "freedom." In the context of Irish culture and history, "saoirse" often refers to the struggle for independence and self-determination of the Irish people. The concept of "saoirse" has played a central role in the history of Ireland, inspiring generations of Irish activists and political leaders to fight for freedom and autonomy.

In modern Ireland, the term "saoirse" continues to hold great significance and is often used as a symbol of the Irish people's desire for freedom and independence. Whether in the context of the ongoing conflict in Northern Ireland or in broader discussions of Irish identity and culture, "saoirse" remains an important and powerful concept for the Irish people.

The Hirbawi Saoirse Kufiya is a traditional Palestinian headscarf, made by the renowned Hirbawi factory in the West Bank. The name "Saoirse" means "freedom" in Irish and is a symbol of solidarity between the Palestinian and Irish people, who share a history of struggle for independence and self-determination.

Why Hirbawi?

By buying Hirbawi, you contribute to keeping the tradition of artisanal weavers alive, the last factory in Palestine and pretty much the rest of the region. You get to own a legendary piece of everyday accessories from the factory that started counting its 7th decade of operation. Read more here
