The embroidery on this scarf is based on a traditional scarf in Gaza with a flower pattern. This contemporary version adds the silhouettes of the omnipresent drones of the Israeli occupation, ancoring the embroidery in its storytelling heritage.
The embroidery is done by women who are hard of hearing, working in the Open Studio of the Red Crescent Hospital in Khan Younis.

The Open Studio is a center in Khan Younis where knowledge and know-how are exchanged. Khan Younis is a small town in Gaza with a large refugee camp that has existed for over 60 years and is still growing. It is an Islamic Arab culture that has been cut-off from the outside world; the largest prison on earth. If the political situation allows, artists from abroad visit the Open Studio to participate and teach.
