The Last Kuffiyeh Factory

Take a tour of the Herbawi Textile Factory, Palestine’s last maker of the classic Kuffiyeh.

Hover over the images for captions, and enjoy!

Images were all captured back in 2009. The factory is still there today, but has been jazzed up a bit thanks to loads of business!

Getting there: At the mouth of the entrance to the Old City (with your back to the Old City) its the second (I think) street on your right, up a bit of a steep hill that curves to the left. Follow the curve and keep on the same road for about 5-7 minutes, and keep your eyes open for the sign!

Really getting there: At the mouth of the Old City, turn left, ask where Masnaa Al-Herbawi is… follow your guide.
