homeland in my body

HOMELAND IN MY BODY is a Palestinian, United Kingdom initiative, showcasing Syko Projects sustainable Palestinian fashion [Sereen Khass] and John Boyd Hats – milliner to Diana, Princess of Wales [Sarah Marshall]. Runway music composed by Al Kamandjâti*, Ramallah. HIMB is a Hardy build [Garry Rigby].

HIMB will present fashion shows in Ramallah, London, Tokyo and Sharjah, promoting the Palestinian fashion/textile industry and Boyd hats, encouraging the trend of sustainable fashion design and textile manufacturing.

The textile and fashion industry in Palestine was once a foundation of the economy. After many years of decline, the industry is seeing a resurgence, but requires a deliberate, fundamental transformation if it is to redevelop.

The Palestinian people continue to suffer and endure unbelievable indignities on a daily basis. And yet amid the pain sits a remarkable creative community of designers and manufacturers. They celebrate Palestinian culture, a culture that stands for a spirit of perseverance and determination.

*Al Kamandjâti was founded in France by Palestinian viola and bouzouq player Ramzi Aburedwan in 2002. They focus on children in refugee camps and in villages on the West Bank and Gaza, offering music lessons to Palestinian children. General Director – Iyad Stati.

MAHMOUD DARWISH
was born in 1942 in the village of al-Birweh in Galilee, Palestine. His family fled to Lebanon in 1948 when the Israeli Army destroyed their village, returning secretly to the newly created state of Israel after a year.
From 1970 to 1996 he lived in Moscow, Cairo, Beirut, Cyprus and Paris, finally settling in Ramallah. A member of the PLO’s Executive Council, he wrote the 1988 Palestinian Declaration of Independence, resigning in opposition to the Oslo accords.
As Palestine’s national poet, his many honours included the Lenin Peace Prize, the Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom, the French medal for Knights of Arts and Letters, the Prinz Claus Award from the Netherlands and Struga’s Golden Wreath Award.
Darwish died in 2008, Houston, Texas, U.S. Three days of national mourning followed, to honour the great Arab writer who was given a state funeral in Ramallah. [Fady Joudah © 2007 • The Butterfly’s Burden]

And I weep to make myself known • To a returning cloud • I learnt all the words worthy of the court of blood • So that I could break the rule • I learnt all the words and broke them upTo make a single word: Homeland…
