Who will buy a Palestinian kaffiyeh for NIS 20 when there is a Chinese model for NIS 10?

But none are manufactured in Hebron. Globalization, as the reader knows, has its victims all over the world, and now it has arrived at the last kaffiyeh factory in Palestine, on a quiet street in Hebron, not far from Abu Mazen’s restaurant, known for its grilled chicken, which has opened its second branch here.
