Celebrating Palestinian Heritage: Traditional Embroidery, Dress, and Jewelry

The rich cultural heritage of Palestine is apparent in the traditional dress, jewelry, and embroidery of the Palestinian people. For more than 25 years, Mr. Saleem Fahmawi, chief of the Palestine and Decolonization Section of the United Nations, has worked to assemble a rare and beautiful collection of textiles and artifacts from Bethlehem, Jenin, Nablus, Gaza, Jericho, and other areas representing the diversity of his native land.
