The keffiyehs used for these masks come from the Herbawi Textile Factory in Hebron, which is the only remaining keffiyeh factory in Palestine. These keffiyehs are 100% soft, breathable cotton that transmits moisture away from the body. The traditional keffiyeh is black and white, and these keffiyehs have been contemporized using multiple colors to celebrate this iconic Palestinian pattern.
