Weaving is one of the industries and crafts that you cannot determine the date of its inception. It dates back to the development of humans and tools that have been used since ancient times. Weaving is a craft that is associated with beauty and taste and it distinguishes the different Palestinian cities from each other. It is one of the strongest symbol and sign of culture within the population of any city.
The weaving industry affected the development of commercial industries and opened global markets. The most important product of this industry is the "koffiyeh" which embodies the Palestinian identity and is used for special events. The "koffiyeh" is a Palestinian scarf with grey, white and black designs. In addition, there are beautiful hand-made embroideries that are used to decorate homes.
