8"x10" Linen Hand-embroidered Purse
Includes an embroidered image of St. Catherine's Monastery (based off of a medieval sketch found in a book in the monastery museum) on one side and Mount Sinai with camels on the other.
It includes the embroidered monogram "AK" for St. Catherine (Agia Katerina). The fabric is 100% linen and the embroidery floss is 100% Egyptian cotton.
These are embroidered by different women and there is some variation between them and compared to the one in the photograph. Size is roughly 8"x10". Hangs from the shoulder to the hip.
Please wash by hand in cool water and hang dry.
Paidea Classics is working with the Bedouin in the vicinity of St. Catherine's Monastery, providing work for local women, particularly widows caring for their families, in the now impoverished area. This, in turn, increases support and security for the monastery.
