Made in Beit Jala, near Bethlehem, Palestine.

The Beit Jala embroidery center, part of Women’s Child Care Society (WCCS) supports 30 women who specialize in the distinctive type of embroidery called tahriri, done with couching stitch using Syrian silk thread. Unique to the Bethlehem/Beit Jala area, tahriri embroidery takes six months to master because it is so difficult.

Women’s Child Care Society not only keeps this style of embroidery going but sales benefit the women who do the work as well as their programs for women and children. They were established in 1944 as the second women’s association in Palestine.
