Embroidered Chronicles: A Tapestry of Palestinian Heritage

Voice of Palestine


Embroidery or tatreez  in Arabic is an ancient technique of beauty and complexity and one of the most important cultural materials of Palestine. Historically, each area of Palestine was known for different motifs, techniques and textiles.Embroidery constituted a visual language among rural women, and their clothing reflected their origins and identity.

Tatreez, an ancient art, threads the heart,

Palestinian stories in each stitch, a vibrant start.

Material Power, a century’s woven chart,

From village looms to a modern stringed art.

The ’70s, a politicized string, shadows cast,

Seventy-five years, resilience holds fast.

In the UK’s display, historical strings amassed,

Embroidery’s narrative, a timeless broadcast.
