Get ready for Spring: Our floral product selection

Signs of Spring are starting to show everywhere in Palestine in the last few weeks. Stone terraces of villages are lush with bright green after the generous rain and snow this winter, and hills and fields are carpeted with pastel shades of wildflowers.  

Spring is a brief and the most beautiful season in Palestine, and its inspiration is found in many traditional embroidery motifs stitched by generations of local artisans. We wanted to highlight them in our floral product selection, and get you into the spirit of Spring!
