"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.

Soft, delicate, and high quality.

Love that it keeps me cool on warm days and also keeps me warm on cooler days.

I was extremely happy to get to wear this in the St. Patrick's Day parade this year. It lifted the spirits of a lot of people I ran into. As an Irish dancer, I will be wearing it all year long, no matter the occasion. Free Palestine!! Tiocfaidh ár lá!

Bought 3, for myself and 2 of my brothers. We had read a story about this particular items. As the Irish American children of an immigrant, and an American mother who protested for Bobby Sands, while wearing a Palestinian was a perfect gift. The people of Palestine are in my prayers and in my heart. I hope all countries get to experience respect, peace, humanity. And, of course, Saoirse.


I pray that you were able to open again, and that you are somehow managing to be safe in this madness.
