A thread On the Art of Palestinian Embroidery
Thread by @baytalfann
Once a traditional craft practiced by village women, Palestinian embroidery also known as Tatreez, has become an important symbol of Palestinian culture & identity. It is a rich artistic tradition, passed down through generations.

In 2021, the United Nations’ cultural agency (UNESCO) added the art of Palestinian embroidery, or tatreez in Arabic, to its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Tatreez is an ancient embroidery technique that dates back to the Canaanite era (people who lived in the Arab region, 3,000 years ago). It has been used for centuries by Palestinians - with different colours and patterns symbolising social & community status.
