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.
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.
