Chachoulie brings you handmade accessories that are designed and handmade in London using the fabrics of Palestine. The aim is to breathe life back into the embroidery and Keffiyehs (black and white male headdress) of Palestine and bring them to a world audience by mixing craft, creation and imagination. Pieces of hand-stitched Palestinian embroidery, often vintage, are transformed into exclusively limited-edition accessories, and the light cotton of the Keffiyeh is viewed as a versatile fabric that lends itself well to today’s fashions and tastes.
Chachoulie has combined these fabrics with Western jewellery components and haberdashery to present to you unusual new ideas. The pieces that have utilised embroidery are made around the existing design of the embroidery. The size, colour and shape of the piece dictate the style and use of the final creation. Chachoulie views each fragment as a unique work of art that someone has spent hours stitching. With great regard to this, they cut into the stitches with care and waste nothing.
Since the embroidery is hand stitched, absolute symmetry is not always achieved, and items cannot always be repeated.
