Ahdaf, (Arabic “goals”) a Palestinian charity in Bethlehem, opened in 2010. Part of their work is the new St. Martha’s House, a centre for elderly women whose message is “life is to be cherished at all stages, and it is possible to care for those who need it most even under the most adverse of conditions!” Their recycled glass production also empowers women’s role in society and promotes Palestinian handcrafts. They hope with donations to find a permanent home for St. Martha’s House.

Other countries in the Middle East where the Kufiya is popular, like Jordan or Syria, produce their own -slightly different- versions. Hirbawi is the only factory in Palestine producing the original Keffiyeh, which usually awaits sale in the factory’s small backroom shop.

Surif Women’s Co-operative
The Oasis Workshop
Zaytoun was founded in 2004 to support the resilience and livelihoods of Palestinian farmers under occupation through fairly trading their olive oil. Initially funded by hundreds of customers who put up payment in advance of receiving their oil, Zaytoun quickly established itself as a UK social enterprise. With funding from Triodos Bank the company developed to offer a wide range of Palestinian artisan foods. Canaan Fair Trade in Palestine and Zaytoun in the UK worked together and supported Palestinian farmers to pioneer the world’s first Fairtrade certified olive oil in 2009.
