'Sitti' oversized blazer
A menswear-inspired staple, this oversized blazer features an embroidered house and popular children's Palestinian folk song:
"يا رب تشتي واروح عند ستي تعملي فطيرة أد الحصيرة آكلها وأنام واصبح جوعان"
Translated, reads something along the lines of:
“Oh lord, may it be rainy so I can visit my granny and she’ll make me a pie the size of the sky; I’ll eat it and rest and awaken famished”
As soon as you start singing this song, others join in, giddy with the rosy nostalgia of childhood.
Made with dead stock fabric in a sewing workshop in Askar refugee camp, on the outskirts of Nablus city. Features delicate mother-of-pearl buttons.
