Handmade Palestine is truly a labor of love to bring you the best of Palestinian handicrafts. We proudly showcase the work of 30 talented artisans, cooperatives & designers in Palestine as well as our own original designs.
While Handmade Palestine is located in Ramallah, Palestine, we work with artisans across the country. This incredible initiative is led by volunteers trying to do good for our partner artisans and our country.
This year we have expanded our work thanks to your donations to our crowdfunding campaign and purchase from our website. We have always been committed to bring you the very best of Palestinian crafts and sharing with you the stories of the makers. In 2022, we began supporting artisans in new ways with trainings in branding and marketing, and consultations on design, pricing, marketing and more. With your help, in 2023, for the first time ever, we’ll partner with a project from conceptualization to branding to product design. And then, you’ll get to partner with us by purchasing the handicrafts and supporting the artisans! Together, we’ll provide trainings and job creation for more women artisans.
Often times, women artisans are the sole providers in their families. Many of the cooperatives create and sell handicrafts to raise money for wonderful causes and income generation. With your help, we contribute to sustaining the livelihoods of hundreds of women. Please read more about the talented artisans.
We all struggle to sustain our livelihoods under military occupation, and we thank you for your generous support. Every purchase you make enables us to pay fair trade for all handicrafts directly to the artisans, and with every other penny, we plant trees in Palestine with Mashjar Juthour. You can learn more about this amazing initiative at juthour.org or on Facebook at MashjarJuthour.
