The Southall Collection is a major collection of Palestinian Dress dating from 1900-1930. It includes garments and accessories worn by nomadic Bedouin people as well as men, women and children living in Ramallah and Bethlehem.
This example from the collection is an indigo women's hood with an extension for tying hair in. It is made from one piece of fabric which is stitched along the short side, and half way up the long side. The hood has zig-zag embroidery, in light blue, green, yellow, brown and black, with five plaited tassles. Buttons decorate the stitched end.
