These handmade designs are illustrated by artist and designer, Ayed Arafah. During his stint abroad he would call his mother and ask her for recipes. From Maqloubeh to tomato stew (Qalaya), Ayed was trying to cook his favorite dishes while being dictated instructions from his mother on the phone. The result was many scraps of paper with recipes that he has translated into beautiful drawings and handwritten memos on fabric.
Designs are printed using silkscreen techniques on 100% Mansouri local fabric made in Hebron, Palestine. Wash: 35 C
