Grapes carry a great significance to Palestinian cultural and resiliency, as many parts of the plant give nourishment and protection to households all over. The plant leaves vine up many family homes in cities and villages across the country. As grapes are harvested, the drying process starts with lying the grapes out in the sun for an entire month. Mixed and packaged in Bethlehem by a small women-led business.

Hebron Ceramic Art Bowls

A Ceramic handmade art bowl in the Hebron Glass and Ceramics Factory. Established in 1890, Hebron Glass is a family business that has expanded over the years and is now exporting traditional glassware and ceramics products. The group aims to build lasting relationships with fair trade associations and provide support to artisans. Ceramics date back to the 1500s where the craft was shared through the Ottoman Empire. It has taken many shapes over time and is a way that Palestinian craftsmen can continue to celebrate their culture. All designs change depending on where they are made, similar to embroidery, which means that each village has its own style and colors that give distinction to the region.
