Abeer Ibrahim Jaffal

Abeer sits in her living room among many beautiful handmade pieces of traditional Palestinian embroidery that she refuses to sell in protest against the fact that Palestinian embroidery is currently being sold under the Israeli tag, “I prefer to drown in my own embroidery than to sell it under the name of Israel” she says proudly. “It is the last thing left for us, we must not sell out our culture and heritage to the ones who are stealing it from us.”
