Brown, cumin-yellow and white : a tribute to Alquds / Jerusalem
"Amal" means hope. Amal is also the name of one of our customers, who suggested this combination of colours.
What is a better colour to represent Bethlehem than blue? Blue sky almost all the year, the milk grotto with the blue stones, and the happy people with the warm welcome and open to all cultures. Thinking of Bethlehem, we have designed this Kufiya.

Gaza is portrayed in the media as a place of violence, destruction and poverty. For the Palestinians, however, Gaza is known as the colourful city for its nice beaches, spicy food, fisher boats and the hospitality of its people. "Gazza Ard el-Izza" (the glorious city), it is how we call it warmly in Arabic.
Haifa is called "'Arus el-Bahar", the bride of the sea . The Palestinian city at the mediterranean combines beauty and strong character - similar to this Kufiya.
Blue pattern on yellow background and light blue frame.
The pattern colour is black and the background is a mixture of black and yellow yarn, which appears olive green.
This Kufiya is black, red and green on white background. Many wear this Kufiya to symbolise Palestinian unity. It is also practical, as you can fold it that your favourite colour is highlighted.
(we like to call it ‘Melbourne’!)

The design of this Kufiya found inspiration in the red and black beetle (Um Suleiman), which natural beauty left a big influence in Arabic culture. In paintings, and traditional and modern music (e.g. Tic Tic Um Suleiman from Fairuz) and in poetry.
And we honour the beetle with an original Kufiya, made in Palestine.
