(top: The Herbawi Factory waeves out Keffiyehs on a part-time basis. The rhythms of the machines play on a melody of possible extinction as she is the last one in operation. | bottom: The keffiyahs produced in the Herbawi factory are made from 100% cotton unlike Chinese versions which are made from a 50/50 blend of cotton and polyester.
