Hand-Stitched Artwork

At Palmera Design & Events, we also design and create artwork pieces that show traditional Palestinian embroidery represented through a mix of media. Using old stitching patterns, we designed them in a planned and unique way to portray the crossover from old traditions into the new modern world. Each piece is carefully thought through and stitched with love! The art pieces are made by order, contact us through the details below to get yours made and delivered to you!
