Palestinian embroidery has a rich and fascinating history spanning many regions and embodying the traditions, surroundings and diversity of its people. The art of Palestinian embroidery is an important element in the history of the Palestinian people because it is a common pictorial language that transcends all differences and creates a common ground amongst Palestinians.
