‘Poetic Nights’ combines the fine arts of both calligraphy and fabric design in a handmade pillowcase, with an original design inspired by Arabic poetry. This wonderful item will provide a warm and creative touch to the bedroom, with the lyrical content and meaning allowing poetic dreams to appear. The pillowcase shows a quote from Mahmoud Darwish’s poem ‘In Praise of the High Shadow’: “How we’d love the navy blue except the broken shadow above the sea.”
This pillowcase’s cotton fabric is made in Hebron; it is designed by artist Ayed Arafah and screen-printed and tailored in Bethlehem.
