Fassie embroidery, in reference to the city of Fez, is an ancestral art that has been practiced by Moroccan women for centuries. It is passed down from generation to generation as mothers teach it to their daughters, and as embroidered fabrics have been the centerpiece of the trousseau of the bride since antiquity in Fassie families. This art is based on precision and patience as each piece is embroidered by hand using simply an embroidery hoop, needle and thimble.
