New Petite Project for EGA Members: Hammamet Embroidery by Helene Ossipov

The Education Department is delighted to introduce the latest addition to Petite Projects: Hammamet Embroidery by Helene Ossipov. This ethnic embroidery is from the Tunisian village of Hammamet.

Tunisia was a French Protectorate from 1881 till 1956. During that time, a type of embroidery was developed to be used on table linens and other small items that French visitors could bring back to France. Each town or region had their particular motifs and colors.
