Palestinian woman embroiders face masks with traditional patterns


In its issue of today, Al Akhbar spotlighted Palestinian artisan, Waad Manasra, who embroiders face masks featuring the traditional Palestinian art of tatreez. The purpose, she explains, is to encourage Palestinian girls, in particular, to wear masks at a time when Palestinian territories face a new wave of Covid-19. It started from a simple idea, Manasra expounded, when she embellished her own mask and shared it on social media. Her post got many likes, shares and views, mainly from girls. Currently, she receives a large number of requests for her designs but is selling them only in Al-Khalil governorate. (Al Akhbar, July 17, 2020)
