Embroidered Pillow Cover from Gaza
A stunning new pillow cover from Gaza measures approximately 18 X 12 inches.

Made in Palestine, Sulafa, Gaza.
Sulafa is known for quality embroidery. The organization supports approximately 250 local artisan women by commissioning embroidered items. The purchase of one of these items allows these women to support their families, which often rely on one source of income.
Sulafa is more than a way for women to earn a living. It also helps to preserve the traditions within Palestinian society. Stories depicting life in Palestinian villages are conserved in dresses, scarves, pillows, bags, and other garments, making embroidery a way to tell and remember Palestinian heritage.
