STORY

Inspired by Palestinian mothers seeking refuge and their struggles to create a safe haven for their babies, this blanket arose as a reminder of the mothers’ endless and unwavering love for their children and the desire to protect them. The words of the lullaby are rooted in the memories and convictions of the artisans, and exemplifies being thankful for a newborn baby and the offering of something to drink to those passing by. It is a soft, double-layer cotton blanket with mostly green embroidery and some cheerful orange and yellow stitches, featuring patterns from both Beer Al Sabe’ and Gaza. During the design and making process, the makers sing the lullaby, which can be heard by scanning the QR code printed on the fabric with your smartphone.
