Palestinian thobes (traditional embroidered dresses) date to possibly as far back as 1600 BCE, with techniques having been passed on among women from generation to generation. This project will support the conservation of 100 thobes, establish a textile conservation department, and develop the collection management capacities of the Palestinian Museum.
