Jordanian Embroidery Motifs

Jordanian Embroidery Motifs

Cross stitching in Jordan is effected by its neighboring population largely integrated with them, since their main embroidery techniques are the Ragma and Maan stitches.


More details

The Jordanian costume is remarkable for its vast diversity, despite Jordan's relatively small geographical area. This variation reflects different styles of living, for example, the agricultural societies of the north and the Bedouin nomadic and settled communities of the south.

The variation in embroidery can be noticed in the design and motifs that are the bedouin specific motifs, where the cross stitches in the rest of the societies are very similar in motifs, colors and techniques to their neighboring communities of Palestine.
