BACK TO REGION

This film by Aida Youssef captures the work of Tarek El Safty, an Egyptian master stitcher, whose applique textile work, known as Khayameya, was traditionally used to make ceremonial tents. Today, it has evolved into the fine art of producing decorative hangings and home furnishings sewn entirely by hand.
