Maklouba مقلوبة - Tote bag - Qastina Designs

Cotton tote bag by Qastina Designs: with silkscreen illustrations of some of the most popular dishes from Palestine.

This design features the traditional Maklouba dish. One design has the recipe in Arabic as collected by artist Ayed Arafah from his mother. Maklouba literally means “upside down” and many passionately debate which are the best ingredients to use. This dish includes layers of vegetable, meat and rice in one pot and it is flipped on a tray when serving, hence the name. It is known as the national Palestinian dish.
