I couldn't leave Gaza without buying some beautiful palestinian national embroidery.

P.S. I bet this woman doesn't know she's being blogged.

Now that's something that could really get people interested in going to Gaza - shopping.
That first one is gorgeous. How much?

Done! You could start a "get Imaan back to Sweden" project funded by sales of Palestinian embroidery!

I just found your blog and am so HAPPY! I love Palestinian embroidery and am recently starting to archive my grandmothers work in photos and by trying to make charts. Thanks for showing us more.
