Gaza غزة – A Tale of Two Cities

Regular price $85.00

The port of Asdud and the coastal village of Al Majdal (today a part of the city of Asqalan) are both very close to the Gaza Strip and have rich histories as centers of trade. Al Majdal was famous for its cotton and particularly a fabric that would be dyed indigo, woven with bright pink and blue stripes.

These two cities inspired the colours and motifs we chose for this t-shirt. This motif is a contemporary version of the qiladeh (necklace), usually found on dresses in Asdud - in place of wearing jewelry, a woman would stitch a necklace of thread.
