Surif Women’s Cooperative
Surif Embroidery on Mansouri Cotton
This colorful hand-embroidered piece hails from a local women's cooperative in the Palestinian town of Surif, northwest of the city of Hebron. The cooperative, which was founded shortly after the Nakba to provide supplemental income for women refugees, stands out in its colorful patterns embroidered on Mansouri cotton, handwoven in Jerusalem.
This specific design was created for the cooperative by renowned Palestinian artist, Sliman Mansour.
*Please allow for some minor variations in colors as each piece is unique in its own way. The color variants refer to the two most dominant colors in each piece.
