Palestinian Embroidery is considered an important form of cultural art that is passed on from generation to generation.

The art of embroidery is one common to many cultures around the world. But Palestinian embroidery is unique not only for its striking red and black intricate patterns, but also for its cultural and social meaning. Once a traditional craft practiced only by village women, Palestinian embroidery has taken on new meaning as an artful expression of Palestinian identity.
