Original Kufiya -Palituch from Palestine

Pali shawls from Hebron and shawls designed in Jerusalem

Solidarity is currently on everyone's lips. You can express it with words, but of course there is also the possibility of making a visual statement. Pali shawls, also known as Palestinian shawls, as made famous by Arafat, are one of the possibilities. Pali shawls are available in the typical black and white look, but of course also in other colours. In the original, they are a symbol of freedom and they stand for solidarity with the Palestinians.

Where does the Pali cloth come from?

Pali shawls are much more than a fashion accessory. As early as the 1970s, they were worn in this country as protest outfits by war opponents. But there is more to know about the shawls than just the fact that they used to be the acces- soire of war opponents:

  • the meaning: Pali scarves are the national symbol of the Palestinians. Especially the Palestinian leader Arafat carried this message all over the world.
  • Origin: Pali shawls are also called "Kufiyas". They were and still are worn by Bedouins in the Arab region and serve as protection against sandstorms.
  • the way of wearing: Pali shawls are widespread. To this day, every region has its own way of wearing them. The way they are worn differs especially in the way the corners of the shawl are folded up at the front or back. Those who know a little about this can even determine where the wearer comes from by the way the cloth is worn.
  • Politics: The Pali shawl is closely related to the Middle East conflict. So you should not just wear it indiscriminately for fashion reasons.
  • the production: Unfortunately, there are now many fake offers that have been produced cheaply in China. However, these shawls have no connection to the true meaning of Pali shawls. In the meantime, there is only one weaving mill in Hebron that produces genuine Pali shawls.

Genuine quality only from Hebron

Our Pali shawls offered at Nabali Fairkost are of course genuine originals. They are still made by a family business in Hebron. If you choose one of our models, you are supporting the last remaining original weaving mill that earns its living with this traditional craft. Here you will not only get the classic models in black and white, but also thoroughly modern aspects with innovative colour combinations.


Shawls designed in Jerusalem - made in India

We at Nabali Fairkost are pleased to present you more scarves. They were designed in Jerusalem and correspond to the local tradition. Made

these high-quality shawls are made in India. They are the typical souvenir of tourists who visit the region. In times of travel restrictions and other requirements, business there has virtually come to a standstill. Many family businesses are therefore facing serious difficulties. These fringed scarves are also characterised by striking patterns and the typical fringes at the edges. While in this country they are mainly worn to warm the neck, there they are more used as protection against sand and wind. The people there cross the deserts on their journeys and therefore have to protect their heads from the effects of the sand.

Especially in Bethlehem, which is very dependent on tourism, the Corona crisis created a special situation. The people who previously lived from trading at local tourist markets are facing a real emergency situation.
We at Nabali Fairkost have therefore set out for the region and have been able to secure their livelihoods for another few months through our purchases. Support our initiative and choose the wonderful, high quality summer fabrics of the Pali shawls and Palestine scarves.
