LIBRARY BOOKWACTH - Reviewer's Choice

Threads of Identity: Preserving Palestinian Costume and Heritage is the culmination of years of research and documentation of Arab costumes, textiles, and artifacts that impact Palestinian women's daily lives. Costumes, jewelry, other such artifacts reflect a vital yet rapidly diminishing factor of traditional culture; Threads of Identity examines not only the traditional dresses, textiles, and weavings but also the rural and urban customs, cuisines, and celebrations. Color photographs of textile artifacts on virtually every page and interviews with women who witnessed key events (and terrible traumas) of the twentieth century distinguish this immense, deep, and thought-provoking history. Highly recommended.
