The Palestinian kuffiyeh worn by Palestinian men and women is more than a fashion statement. American University of Sharjah students tell us how the original kuffiyeh represents their pride in being Palestinian and what the kuffiyeh means to the Palestinian resistance. They explain how the latest colorful fashion Kuffiyehs tend to diminish the shawl’s original meanings. Watch this fascinating story for a better understanding of a seemingly common Palestinian fashion that is infact embedded in valuable symbolic meanings.
