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.
This bookmark is made by the Atfaluna Society for Deaf Children, located in Gaza City, Palestine. This amazing project serves as income generation for the hearing impaired through the production of high quality embroidery, ceramics and wood work. Located in Gaza, the Atfaluna Society offers schooling, speech therapy, excellent crafts and more.

What if I want to ship to a U.S. address?
You're in luck, our products are actually stored in California, so you're only paying for U.S. domestic shipping. But before that, processing takes a few days on our side before our volunteer in California gets your package to the post office.
Domestic shipping takes 3-5 days depending on shipping destination. Once orders ship, we'll email you a confirmation with tracking (for domestic) or customs (for international) numbers.
It is your responsibility to track and, if necessary, follow up with customs to get your package.

Please know that there are other costs before we get to shipping. When you receive your package, you'll notice that the shipping cost on the box is not the same as what you paid. We have to get items from the cooperatives all over Palestine and then ship to you. Thank you for your order, your patience, and your support!
