Keep the art of tatreez alive in Palestine

Tatreez embroidery is a centuries-old Palestinian art form, traditionally passed down from mother to daughter. Our non-profit's mission for Darzah is twofold: 

1) Create job opportunities for refugee and low-income women in Palestine

2) Preserve the art of tatreez and celebrate Palestinian culture

Tatreez designs are at risk of being lost

Today fewer Palestinian women are learning tatreez embroidery. With your help, we will help preserve this art form by creating jobs for embroiderers in Palestine, and by building The Tatreez Archive -- the world’s largest online database of tatreez motifs. We'll invite the 10 million Palestinians around the world to submit motifs from their own family heirlooms -- documenting the design, its history and its origins. Our easy-to-use website will enable Palestinians to share their cultural heritage with the world.

Jobs for refugee and low-income women

Darzah is a project of Child's Cup Full, a non-profit based in the West Bank that trains and employs refugee and low-income women artisans to make handmade, fair trade certified goods. We create lasting economic opportunities for marginalized women to support themselves, their families and their communities in Palestine.

A symbol of Palestinian cultural heritage

The Tatreez Archive will be an educational resource, not only for Palestinians, but for the entire world. We want people who wear our products to share the story of tatreez with their friends and acquaintances, and learn more about the hundreds of designs from villages and cities all over Palestine.

We're committed to supporting the Palestinian economy in our entire supply chain -- we work with a local shoe maker to address the declining shoe industry in HebronWe also source all of our materials from local suppliers and manufacturers in the West Bank.
