Palestine Online Bazaar
From Palestine to You, Wherever You Are
You can't come to the artisans, so we are bringing the artisans to you.
bringing us closer
Why the online bazaar?
In the past 2 years having an online shop saved our project so we could support Palestinian artisans. If we'd only marketed their handicrafts at our display in Ramallah, Handmade Palestine would have collapsed. Your online support has given us hope & encouragement to help more artisans.
We have curated an online bazaar for you to meet our artisans, learn where they're from, and support their work. Your donation and purchases will greatly help our artisans get back on their feet after the devastating 2 years of COVID-19.

Jelld social enterprise from Hebron is an incredible initiative committed to creating handmade leather accessories in Palestine. Our favorite thing about Jelld (besides their unique products!) is that they support the community by creating work opportunities for women and people with disabilities, who wouldn't otherwise secure income generation projects.

Established as part of the cooperative association’s efforts to provide women in Hebron district the resources to provide for themselves and their families through the production and sales of Palestinian handicraft items. The one hundred and fifty women who produce the items that are sold come from across Hebron district from eight cities and villages. The proceeds from sales provide themselves and their families with additional income that could not otherwise be obtained through part-time employment.

Initially the very cool idea for El Bier Seeds & Art was to promote seed collection and art around Palestinian natural heritage. These folks use locally produced fabric, sewn by a tailor in Hebron, and printed in Dheishah Refugee Camp.
The craftsman in Bethlehem have carved olivewood as a part of their tradition. While Bethlehem was once a booming tourist destination, before Israeli occupation, today many woodworkers take second jobs, struggling to keep their traditional craft alive.
Designer Nadira Alaraj and the Kattan family silversmiths do incredible work in Bethlehem, picking Roman olive leaves and casting them to create unique molds.
A wonderful initiative located in a historic, renovated house in the heart of the old city of Bethlehem, this project buys wool from Bedouins and processes it by hand into felt. Members of this initiative come to socialize and work in a supportive and fun environment.

In the tiny village of Nisf Jebil, a charming renovated home has become the workshop for a few women trained in ceramics. The village relies largely on olive farming to survive, so this cooperative is an important space for women to receive training and generate income.

Received my Maqloubeh apron and love it! Already getting compliments! Also, it was delivered within a week. Great service.
I love my ring & keffiyeh and I will definitely be ordering from Handmade Palestine again. I was astounded at how quickly I received a "your items have shipped" notice. Very happy.
I've been buying the baby teething products for years. They are so sweet and an easy go to gift for baby showers and expecting parents. The shipping time is incredibly fast and the packaging is simple and beautiful. They include a little story about the producers that add a lot of value to gift.
I ordered an embroidered scarf and two soaps from Handmade Palestine as a last-minute Christmas present. I wasn't sure if the products would arrive in time, but I reached out to the Handmade Palestine team and they were kind enough to ship the package to me immediately. The products arrived in pristine condition and were just as beautiful as pictured online. Thank you for the pleasant experience! I look forward to shopping again.
