This is kinda cool.
«According to the Arab American Institute (AAI), tatreez, the art of embroidery, dates back to the 8th century CE: “When a Palestinian woman wears her thobe, or traditional Palestinian dress, she is displaying her heritage on her sleeves. Palestinian embroidery, or tatreez, is the artwork featured on each woman’s thobe, and the shapes and colors of the tatreez can be read to understand a woman’s background, heritage, and struggle.”»
She looks a little serious, but oh well. 🙂
