History of Palestinian Embroidery 

Once a traditional craft practiced by village women, Palestinian embroidery has become an important symbol of Palestinian culture. 

The popularity of embroidery springs both from its beauty and its association with Palestinian culture and history and dates back to the region more than 3,000 years ago.

Traditionally, embroidery was the principal decoration of rural Palestinian women's clothing. It was part of a village woman's daily routine and a means of showing off her personal skills and social identity. The various colors, patterns and styles of dress reflected a woman's social standing, marital status and wealth.
