Israeli kites
עפיפונים תוצרת הארץ
For Shula and Eli Shavit kite-making is a hobby that they shared with their children. You can
meet them in kite festivals in France or Italy for example, but they do not produce or sell
kites, but only have their own. The dress kites was inspired by the signing of the peace
agreement with Jordan in 1995. Its construction was based on a traditional Japanese kite in
the shape of the kimono (
sode
), reminiscent of traditional Palestinian dress. Therefore they
constructed two kites: a black Palestinian dress with a pattern that resembles traditional
cross- stitch embroidery, and a white Israeli dress, which resembles dresses worn by Israeli
folk dance groups. These two kites are supposed to fly together.
