Hi my friends!
I know you’ve been waiting for it and I’m finally ready to present my apron collection in collaboration with Darzah designs! How exciting?!
This has been a labor of love over the past 6 months, but worth every minute spent. We really wanted to create pieces that were aesthetically beautiful while also durable so we went back and forth on design, fabric motifs until they were perfect. I am so happy to share this with all of you because these are truly one-of-a-kind items straight from me!
Who is Darzah?
I am also very proud to say that Darzah is a non-profit organization whose work is 100% handmade by artisans in the West Bank. Their mission is to economically empower these women through fair wages and working conditions. This is a cause that I can most definitely stand behind and so happy to support with this apron collection. This also means a chunk of sales will always go to the women creating these pieces.
What is Tatreez?
Tatreez is the Palestinian form of cross-stitch embroidery. It is honestly a beautiful art form that is very expressive. The motifs I chose for my tatreez designs are the olive branch and kuffiyeh. These two symbols are very significant to Palestinians and many around the world. Both the olive branch and kuffiyeh are stitched by hand onto each apron produced. Truly making these aprons one of a kind.
What is Our Mission?
This partnership seeks to give back to the community that has inspired the products and recipes created by myself and Darzah. Every profited dollar is invested back into empowering these women.
