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 snowflake motif pattern.

DETAILS

  • Measures about 1.25 in. in length.
  • Made from brass metal.
  • Care: Though these are made from a very strong material, the earrings should be handled with care to extend their wear and avoid scratching/general damage. The earring wires themselves are made of either a gold-plated metal, so avoid water contact to ensure longer lasting color!
