Description

Embroidery has been a staple of Palestinian tradition and fashion for as long as people can remember. Fashion is now changing, but women used to wear beautiful embroidered dresses, each with their own village’s style and pattern. Janette Al-Alma, who was taught how to embroider by her mother, has taken this decorative artform and applied it to this unique gift. With the success of her enterprise she now employs Muslim and Christian women who are struggling in the difficult economy.
BE ADVISED: Not every item is exactly alike. There might be slight variations in the pattern and colors. We will do our best to ship one that is closest to the one in the image. If you need an exact replica of the one in the image please contact us.
