tatreez denim vest no. 1
An oversized black denim vest featuring up-cycled tatreez and manajel from a vintage Palestinian thob. The Manajel stitch is a seam stitch used to decoratively attach together the different pieces of fabric in a dress. It is a highly time and thread-consuming needlework as the stitches need to be very close to one another for it to appear as a single strip of embroidery.
Souk Samara is a local Palestinian brand which gives fraying vintage thobs a second life.
