SILK THREAD MARTYRS UNTIL 9TH MARCH
Silk Thread Martyrs...Palestinian textile designer Omar Joseph Nasser-Khoury’s collection of 22 garments is on show at the Mosaic Rooms, London until 9 March 2011. Entry is free. Inspired by traditional Palestinian costumes, he follows his ancestors’ methods of creation. The fabric, natural dyeing and embroidery are created by hand. Exploring duty, gender and social constraints, the collection has an underlying tone of sadness at the political conflict in Palestine.
