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, fishing boats and the hospitality of its people. “Gazza Ard el-Izza” (the glorious city), it is how we call it warmly in Arabic. Our best seller.
The colours of this Kufiya depicts the Palestinian feeling towards Gaza.
The design of this Kufiya found inspiration in the red and black beetle (Um Suleiman). Its natural beauty had a big influence in Arabic culture – in paintings, traditional and modern music (e.g. Tic Tic Um Suleiman from Fairuz), and in poetry.
And we honor the beetle with an original Kufiya, made in Palestine.
