Palestinian cross-stitch embroidery (tatriz in Arabic) is a beautiful example of Palestinian handicraft. Historically, this work was typically produced by village and Bedouin women in a wide variety of styles. Palestinian women express their creativity, culture, and sense of regional identity through this rich artistic tradition, characterized by elaborate patterns and vibrant colors.
Embroidery is imported from Gaza, where artists work under incredibly difficult conditions.
