Palestinian Ramallah Dress

Ramallah dress dating to the 1930s. Palestinian embroideries flourished during that period due to better accessibility to European materials and Eastern European Jewish stitching techniques to. A lot of the work was produced in the town of Beit Dajan and this dress probably originated there.

The two vertical rows at the front and the heavy block of embroidery at bottom back are typical Ramallah while the yoke is Bethlehem designed. It was quite common to combine design of different towns and also to replace yokes when worn.
