Pasha Tents 2




Pasha Tents 2 Wihdeh collection:
Wihdeh Collection Concept
Year 2019

This artwork has introduced the language of embroidery, where every group of stitches is referred to as a ‹unit›. From there comes our inspiration, stemming from our strong belief in the spirit of unity we created this line ‹wihdeh› not only to shed light on the beauty of unification but also to bring together the delights of our culture.

Two prominent elements are present in this line; embroidery (tatreez) to give the cultural feel, and our personal naqsh stroke to add an extra designer-personalized dimension. Those two elements are presented through engraved stone surfaces enhanced with brass fillings, to create minimal structures with a sculptural feel. The use of those two materials allows the presence of cultural elements in non-traditional patterns and presentations.

Material: Stone with brass
Dimensions: W:75cm X L:75cm

Heavy Roads




Heavy Roads:
The Route to Egypt
The Route to Damascus
Year 2020

The different Palestinian cross-stitch motifs and patterns tell stories of daily activities and tell of the social status of the thobe wearer and would also indicate their village or city.

Families from a higher social status whose daughters were about to get married, would travel to either neighboring Egypt or Syria to buy their daughter’s needs to prepare for her wedding.

The first image, engraved in stone, is a cross stich called the Route to Egypt, and the second the Route to Damascus.

Families would adorn their daughter’s dresses with those cross stiches so people would know they had travelled to buy their wedding needs.

These same routes turned into routes for the Palestinian exodus. What was a happy journey became the journey of no return post 1948 as Palestinians were driven out of their homeland.

The patterns fade into the stone to mark the erasing of the Palestinian identity as they merged with the cultures of the people in their host countries.
