Black Shawl with Rainbow Embroidery - Handmade Palestine
Sulafa Gaza

Black Shawl with Rainbow Embroidery

Regular price $ 74.95 USD

This stunning hand embroidered scarf features traditional tatreez motifs on a black linen shawl with tassels. The vibrant colors in the embroidery really pop against the black fabric. Scarves like these are a traditional accessory for women in Palestine and the tatreez or cross stitch is a traditional skill handed down from one generation to the next.

Please note that tatreez thread color might slightly differ than the original photo.

This scarf is made by women at the Sulafa Embroidery Center in Gaza which supports around 250 local artisans by commissioning traditional and contemporary embroidered goods. The purchase of a Sulafa product allows these women to support their families, which often rely on only one source of income.


Dimensions: 176x65 cm | 70x25.5"
