For me Inaash represents the cultural heritage of my family, forced into exile in 1948.Our embroidery is a form of visual language that speaks of geography, status and belonging. It is also a kind of woven narrative documenting the existence of entire communities that have been dispersed or erased.Through Inaash we hope the world will see that Palestinians are not simply refugees but a people with an incredibly rich culture and history.
Because we care
Not a day goes by without one or more of Inaash’s ten board members making their way through the notorious Beirut traffic towards the Inaash show/room office in the Hamra district. All are volunteers and all share a commitment to make Inaash sustainable.
They bring various skills to the table and work to their strengths in committees: design, embroidery, finance, communications, exhibitions and fundraising. The most senior among them have been with Inaash from inception and have an encyclopedic knowledge of embroidery and its provenance.
