handmade. our first summer drop is an ode to the techniques and crafts of our ancestors--and to the inherent Palestinian connection to the land.
playing with natural dyeing, we wanted to introduce a technique which was once an inseperable part of Palestinian creativity and textile heritage but has now been pushed to the edge of extinction. we experimented with local and traditionally used roots and insects to create color and tell this story.
the collection also features traditional hand embroidery, tatreez, in partnership with a local women's cooperative. made up of over 60 women from Gaza to al Khalil, the Touch of Heritage cooperative is a creative and political powerhouse.
