“Lamsat Unmmi”, is a non-profit and cooperative project which aims to empower women, especially mothers, in marginalized societies and refugee camps and to preserve the Palestinian art of embroidery. The project was created by Dr. Fayeq Oweis for the memories of his beloved mother who inspired his art and love for embroidery. Each piece of “Lamsat Ummi” hand-made products combines Arabic poetry with Kufic Arabic calligraphy designed by Fayeq Oweis and embroidered by hand. The name “Lamsat Ummi” means “My Mother’s Touch” and it was inspired by the poetry of Mahmoud Darwish: I yearn for the bread of my mother, her coffee and her touch. By buying these products, you are supporting women in marginalized societies and helping provide opportunities to them. ...more
