Mashrabiya, founded by Yusif and Andrea Farsakh, promotes traditional embroidery made by women in villages and refugee camps throughout Palestine. For decades, the Farsakhs sold embroidered dresses, jackets, vests, shawls, pillow cases, runners and purses at Arab-American festivals and conventions in the DC Metro Area. Middle East Books and More is honored to sell their handmade embroidery in our store. Buying traditional Palestinian embroidery empowers Palestinian women economically who are keeping the art of embroidery alive as they support their families.
