Tatreez Bookmark in Rainbow Fish Scales Design
This intricately threaded bookmark reveals traditional embroidery designs, characteristic of Palestinian artwork. Tatreez is historically found in Palestinian villages, where the women spend hours weaving together colorful pieces of thread to create a unique piece of art. This tradition has been passed down from generation to generation as a form of Palestinian culture, as mothers teach their daughters how to create tatreez, and pass down their own creations.
