Cross-stitch embroidery is an ancient and universal art, found throughout Europe and the Middle East. Representations of women wearing embroidered tunics were found in excavations in Jericho, the oldest known continuously inhabited town in the world. In historic Palestine, cross-stitch embroidery was considered a basic skill that all girls should have. Since formal education wasn’t available to village girls until the 1940’s, embroidery was one of the areas in which a young girl could excel. Hang this beautifully hand embroidered wall hanging anywhere in your home to add a touch of tradition.
