Embroidery of West Bank
Our artisan partners of West Bank focus on textile embroidery using the delicate motifs and symbols unique to the Palestinian culture. The intricate, geometric designs, dating back centuries, are created by skilled women artisans, and often hint to the origin or familial identity of the artist. Many of the traditional symbols found in Palestinian embroidery relate to the natural environment of the region, as well as the cultural values instilled for generations.
The current conflict zone creates a difficult situation for women pursuing a stable income and economic independence. Our partnership with the women artisans of West Bank aids in the creation of employment opportunities for refugee and low-income women, while sharing their remarkable designs and expert craftsmanship with our customers.
