Back in 2016 Brian Megens (founder of Fixed Gear Coffee) traveled to Palestine for his photography project ‘The Other Side of Palestine‘. In a nutshell, the aim of his project was to find out who the Palestinian is and portray life in Palestine. Both are very different than most Western media portray. More on the project can be found here.
These original Palestinian Kufiya’s are produced near Hebron and come from the last kufiya factory still in operation. Back in 2016 Brian imported a bunch and started his social entrepreneurship venture Pure Palestine to show that something nice can come from a country that has been torn by violence and war and that Palestinians are “Human beings that, like most of us, just want to build up a life, to take care of family, friends and themselves regardless the oppression and the lack of human rights they suffer from.”
Get yourself an original kufiya to be warm on cooler days or simply just look awesome!
