The editors of "Asalah" gratefully acknowledge the important scholarship, both Palestinian and international, that has been done to document the artistry of traditional Palestinian embroidery.
Certainly, this issue of "Asalah" would not have been possible without borrowing heavily from the following:
Palestinian Costume by Shelagh Weir. Published by British Museum Press, 1994.
The National Palestinian Costume by Sherif Knaena, Omar Hamdan, Nabil El-Kham and Walid Rabeh. Published by the Arabic Studies Association, 1982.
Embroidering a Life: Palestinian Woman and Embroidery by Elizabeth Price. Produced by Sunbula in cooperation with the Palestinian Heritage Center.
