Palestinian tatreez embroidery

14.6.2024 - 16.6.2024

Palestinian tatreez embroidery is centuries-old folk art traditionally used for decorating garments and accessories. The patterns are ancient and each stitch and color carries its own story and meaning even today.

Tuulikki Haddadin (née Ala-Salmi) has, over the years, collected old Palestinian dresses during her travels in the Middle East and in her home country, Jordan. She has created artworks from the embroidery pieces cut from these dresses, which will be on display in Espoo for the weekend.

At the exhibition opening on June 14 at 6 pm, there will also be Palestinian poetry readings and a Crafts4gaza sales table with proceeds going directly to those in need in Gaza.

Warmly welcome!
