Passed on from one generation to the next, Palestinian embroidery and cuisine have always been a cornerstone of our culture and existence. Every stitch and pattern and every recipe and dish tells the story of a city in Palestine. The essence of our identity is observed in the small details of how our ancestors lived, what they wore and ate and how they celebrated. A mosaic of artful, unique and precious traditions and aromatic flavours we refuse to give up wherever we exist on this earth, in Palestine and in exile.
