Tiraz: The Widad Kawar Home for Arab Dress

"Tiraz: The Widad Kawar Home for Arab dress" is a private collection of garments, textiles and jewellery, which was built up by Widad Kawar(Amman, Jordan). Tiraz (for short) was opened to the public in 2014. The word tiraz refers to a medieval Arab tradition of embroidering and, later in time, weaving inscriptions into textiles.
