Dheisheh is one of three Palestinian refugee camps in Bethlehem. First created in 1949 to accommodate displaced Palestinians from more than 45 villages west of Jerusalem. The people of Dheisheh are very special. Despite poor living conditions, they have a very high level of education, they are resistant, resilient, and good-humored. To them, we dedicate this energetic, elegant, and vibrant design.
The design of this Kufiya is inspired by the city of Yafa (Jaffa) located at the Mediterranean Sea. The name Yafa means beauty in Canaanite and the charm of the city makes you fall in love with it immediately – exactly like this Kufiya. The deep blue zig-zag pattern on a black background represents the gentle waves of the sea during the warm summer nights of Yafa.
Wine red background with a colorful zigzag pattern. Named after Dura, an ancient Palestinian city famous for its vineyards since the Canaanites, who had called the city Adoraim, which means “two hills”.
This Kufiya is named after the ancient city in the north of the historical Palestine. When we think about Tabariya we think about the blue lake of tiberias, the fish and the proud fishermen and -women. Accordingly Tabariya Kufiya shows a white fishing net on a blue and black background.
In an attempt to produce Alquds Kufiya we used the wrong yarn and this charming Kufiya was the result.
But, as we refuse all kinds of political attempts to substitute Alquds (Jerusalem) with the city of Abu Dis, we will not accept it on ourselves to dub this Kufiya with the name Alquds. Instead, we call it Abu Dis. Named after an ancient Palestinian city located in close proximity to the city of Jerusalem. It is charming and beautiful, but clearly and in plain sight, Abu Dis is not our Alquds!
