Six Branch is a collaboration between BA Textile Design students from Central Saint Martins and the Women in Hebron embroidery cooperative in Palestine. Here, contemporary design and traditional skills combine to cross borders with stitches.
Women In Hebron is a collective of 120 embroiderers based in the Hebron area. They produce textiles drawing inspiration from traditional patterns passed down through the decades.
The two groups have been working together since 2015 as a borderless design society. This project is the starting-point for many more collaborative skill sharing.
