Product Details for Keffiyeh -Traditional Black & White - Made in Palestine
It is said that the distinctive woven check pattern of the keffiyeh originated in an ancient Mesopotamian representation of either fishing nets or ears of grain. The keffiyeh (also known as a hattah, ghutrah, mashadah or shmagh) was worn in the desert countries of the Arab world for centuries to protect against the sun, wind and sands of the deserts of the world by men and women.
The family run factory since 1961, Hirbawi Textile Factory, run by 76 year old Yasser Hirbawi produces the orginal Palestinian Keffiyeh. Made in Hebron in the West Bank in traditional woven black and white pattern (the symbol of Palestinian heritage), a generous 48 inches square with a tiny ball fringe on all sides and a tassel on 2 corners, made of a lightweight natural cotton fabric for comfort in all the seasons.

You can roll it, twist it and wear it as a neck scarf. Folded into a triangle you can drape it over a coat, wear it as a shawl or around your waist as a ‘hipster’ scarf. It’s urban chic today. From rap stars to movie stars, from LA to Tokyo you can spot this trend. From hip-hop to collegiate, from casual to edgy evening wear, it’s a fun, fabulous must have fashion accessory.
