Our work also helps to sustain infrastructures, as many of the producer groups also provide health, education and emergency services in their communities which lack any form of local government which might do this.
We are a member of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers supply other fair trade shops and individual fair traders as well as Palestinian solidarity groups. We are a sister shop to Sunbula which has 2 shops in Jerusalem, and work closely with Zaytoun in the UK.
Palestinian handcrafts have always been living examples of ethnic art deeply rooted in Palestinian folklore; they have now become a symbol of the people and their striving for a normal way of life with a national identity, in the face of the Israeli occupation of their land. Making beautiful crafts also helps people psychologically to survive during long hours and days when they are not permitted to travel because of Israeli-imposed barriers and restrictions.
