Majdalawi Weaving

Who makes this craft:

Atfaluna Crafts










Originated from the Palestinian village of Al-Majdal (Israeli city of Ashkelon today), the Majdalawi fabric is a traditional Palestinian cloth woven by a male weaver on single treadle looms, using black and indigo cotton threads combined with silk threads in fuchsia and turquoise. Today, the fabric is woven at the Atfaluna Crafts, and the Arts and Crafts Village in Gaza City as a part of cultural preservation project.
