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!
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.
