This book focuses on the spectacular embroidery which flourished in rural Palestine in the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth. During this period Arab village women embellished their ceremonial costumes with a variety of materials and techniques : lustrous floss silk embroidery, intricate cord couching, and taffeta and satin patchwork. Embroidery styles varied throughout the country, so that each garment was both a work of art and an expression of village and regional identity.In her introduction the author outlines the cultural context in which this beautiful work was produced, describes the main types of ornamentation, and explains how and why fashions changed through time.

Designers and artists cannot fait to be inspired by the striking colours and patterns of this superb example of human creativity.
