Who is this kaffiya named after? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilbert_Baker_(artist)
I came to Gilbert with a plan to tie-dye keffiyehs. He insisted that I get them custom woven and gave me his dye numbers. Gilbert strongly supported the politics of putting his flag on keffiyeh scarves. He encouraged me to use his 1994 six-color flag, but considered his 1978 eight-color flag personal.
