In the midst of blockade and affliction in Palestine's besieged Gaza Strip, a small group of Palestinian women come together to create embroidered crafts, including bookmarks. Aya Sha'sha'a decided to launch a family business along with her five sisters and called it "Six Flowers", representing each of the sisters. They create embroideries of traditional Palestinian dresses, wallets, mobile phone covers, and bookmarks. Electricity is not always accessible, among other obstacles the sisters must face, but they defy the challenges and send their products out into the world.
