(Arabic: tatriz) is a splendid example of a traditional Palestinian handicraft. It is an exclusively female, rich artistic tradition, characterized by elaborate patterns and vibrant colors. It is an intricate medium through which Palestinian women express their creativity, culture and sense of regional identity.
Across the country, Palestinian embroiders use the same techniques, but the styles and colors are unique to each region. The patterns are a combination of geometric, floral and arabesque designs. In general, a wide variety of fabrics, such as cotton, linen, and wool are used in embroidery.
