Hand-embroidered, 100% Linen, Pascha Basket Cover from Sinai, Egypt
We will be picking up these hand-embroidered Pascha basket covers from St. Catherine's Monastery in Sinai, Egypt in August. We are now accepting pre-orders with the hope to raise funds for the next Bedouin project of hand-embroidered St. Nicholas Day stockings and book bags. Ordered Pascha basket covers will be shipped late August/early September.
Paidea Classics is working with the Bedouin in the vicinity of St. Catherine's Monastery, providing work for local women in the now impoverished area. This in turn, increases support and security for the monastery.
This is the smaller size approximately 16" square. It includes the embroidered monogram "AK" for St. Catherine (Agia Katerina). The fabric is 100% linen, the embroidery floss is 100% cotton and the beads are glass.
