Palestinian history tapestry

Palestinian history tapestry

To give work and dignity to Palestinian women living in refugee camps, women who are poor and whose land has been taken from them.

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

 

Based in the U.K. and started in 2012, the project aims to record an insufficiently appreciated history of Palestine.

Through beautiful and skilled Palestinian embroidery (a tradition handed down for generations) this project tells the story of Palestine and the life and heritage of the indigenous people of Palestine. 

The Palestinian History Tapestry project, as well as providing much-needed income, inspires  young  women to continue the embroidery tradition and encourages older women to pass on their  techniques to  a new generation.
