Embroidery

Women in Palestine have been embroidering for centuries. Examples of Palestinian embroidery can be found as far back as the 19th century.  Earlier examples are described in the memoirs of travelers, as well as in pre-19th century European paintings.  Many of the motifs represented in the materials are also found in regional ancient mosaics and carvings.

Palestinian embroidery is very beautiful and of very high quality. The tradition of embroidering in locally-distinctive styles was at its height during the Ottoman rule of Palestine. The traditional style of Bethlehem and Jerusalem is unique to that of Gaza.  The motifs in represented in Bethlehem and Jerusalem include the tree of life, and are dominated by vibrant reds, golds, and yellows.  Whereas the motifs of Gaza— predominantly the amulet, the butterfly, and the comb— are represented in a variety of deep purples. Many historic motifs are inspired by the natural landscape and wildlife, while others are derived from basic geometric shapes like triangles, squares and rosettes.
