The Hirbawi family runs the last remaining kufiyeh factory in Palestine, producing the recognizable iconic designs known all around the world today.

Yassar Hirbawi, who founded the factory in 1962, describes a daily struggle to keep the factory afloat, now facing strong competition from cheaper kufiyeh manufacturers overseas and an unstable political environment at home.

Designed by the Hirbawi family at the last standing factory in Palestine, each Kufiyeh is handmade using a specific cross-stitching honed over decades. Only a handful of people still hold the generational knowledge of this time-honoured technique, which can be easily felt by the quality of the Kufiyeh’s materials and stitching.
