Pink is the defining colour for any embroidery out of Gaza. Surrounding villages may have incorporated samples of the colour in their needlework, but Gaza’s tapestry is recognised by its exclusive use of the colour! This motif is a contemporary version of the qiladeh (necklace), in place of wearing jewelry, a woman would stitch a necklace of thread.
