DESCRIPTION

Feature a bit of traditional Palestinian art as part of your everyday wardrobe. Our culture, after all, is our resistance!

  • "Tatreez", or the Palestinian art of cross-stitch embroidery, is an art that survives today as a central facet of Palestinian culture. What used to be practiced primarily by village women as a means to decorate their dress and show their personal skills/identity now is a rarer art form (not to say that tatreez is not a popular design for women's thobes, etc). This particular item takes its inspiration from the feather tatreez border common to many Palestinian embroidered pieces.

DETAILS

  • Measures about 1 inch in length.
  • Made from plywood, hand-painted with bright acrylic paint, and adhered to surgical steel posts with surgical steel butterfly backs.
  • Care: Though these are made and painted from very strong material, the earrings should be handled with care to extend their wear and avoid scratching/general damage. When putting on or taking off the earrings, be delicate to ensure longevity of the pieces.
