Hand embroidered Palestinian scarf - Qurs bi-Reesh / Disc of feathers

166 x 66 cm | viscose | base dark grey
This beautiful dark grey rectangular scarf is embroidered using pale coral, brick red and off-white colour thread. Designed by Saru Fashion - an artistic fashion line that seeks to revive Arab cultural inspirations, with a focus on traditional Palestinian handmade needlework (Tatreez). This design involves two different patterns; the square shaped pattern is an original Palestinian embroidery pattern called Disc of Feathers(قرص بريش ) from the region of Hebron in Palestine. The second pattern is a computer generated one, Star of Bethlehem, (نجمة بيت لحم).

The scarf is hand cross-stitched by Palestinian women in the Gaza Refugee Camp in Jerash, Jordan. Saru collaborates with groups of women from Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan, providing them with work to help them sustain themselves and their families and at the same time keeping alive the traditional Palestinian embroidery.

Unisex scarf
The pattern runs on one side along the length of scarf.
