Kefiyyeh factory - the only one in the West Bank

If you don't know about it you would never find it. But we knew and it was so worth it. The only Keffiyeh factory in the West Bank, with just 4 employees, produces 120 Keffiyes per day. In an uncountable variety of color combinations. So if you need to pick just one, it is a really tough decision:)

It is a family business and most probably we were one of the very few who ever visited it. People did not seem disturbed by our presence and continued to do their job just as they usually do.

Keffiyeh is a scarf traditionally used by Arab men to cover their heads. It is also a Palestinian national symbol. Now it is worn in many different ways and became part of fashion.
