Keffiyeh/Kufiya Palestine Button Pin ~ Magnificently designed – this Keffiyeh/Kufiya Palestine Button Pin can be worn as a symbol against racism and hated.
Traditionally worn by Arab men, the keffiyeh is usually a scarf, but in recent years non-Arab men have been seen adorning keffiyehs as a symbol of war protest and a fight against racism.
There are a number of people that claim that the keffiyeh has become so overused in Western popular culture that is has almost eliminated the actual meaning of the decoration. Hip hop artists adorn the scarves and the decoration can be seen in the fashion industry as well.
The meaning of this keffiyeh/kufiya Palestine button will have to live in the heart of the person who wears it. Only the owner will know the true meaning that this symbol holds for them.
As a side note, separate from the meanings that the keffiyeh/kufiya holds, it is a beautiful design. I can understand why the fashion industry has taken a likeness to this design. In addition, what does it mean when people wear a design because they appreciate the design instead of wearing it for its meaning? Perhaps the meaning has become to weak to hold water.
