Size: 19cm x 12cm Producer: Sulafa Embroidery Centre, Gaza Strip About Sulafa Embroidery Centre Sulafa is a household name in Gaza for quality embroidery, and supports approximately 250 local women artisans by commissioning traditional and contemporary embroidered goods.  Although traditional Palestinian tatreez (embroidery) is labour-intensive and time-consuming, Sulafa’s products tell the stories of women living in Gaza - women who bear an increasing burden of supporting their families. By supporting women to work from home, Sulafa allows women to balance their home responsibilities while earning an income to support a better life for their children and families.  It is also a way to preserve the traditions and culture of embroidery within Palestinian society and pass these essential skills from one generation to the next.  The Sulafa Embroidery Centre was initiated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in 1950, to provide work for women in Gaza's refugee camps.
