Embroidered Tatreez Accessories

 Traditional embroidery in Palestine is called tatreez. It is a skill many women in Palestine learn as children and practice into adulthood, both to decorate their own homes and also for income generation.

Embroidery patterns are traditionally cross-stitched on dresses and headdresses, while nowadays and due to the popularity of this craft we can see embroidery put on all sorts of Palestinian accessories such as embroidered pencil bags, coin purses, card holders, wrist bands, bookmarks, even book covers, and wall art.
