Za’atar is Palestine’s most beloved spice mix. Our Palestine Za’atar is curated with a mix of thyme, sesame, and sumac which make it a staple in every home. Mixed and packaged in Bethlehem by a small women-led business, this package supports Palestinian women entrepreuners. Za’atar has become a culinary sensation due to its intense herb flavour and tangy zing. Long a staple of Palestinian cooking and street food, za’atar is made with wild thyme and sumac mixed with roasted sesame seeds and salt. Add za’atar to make instant salad dressings and marinades, garnish on dips and soups, sprinkle on breads and pizza, rub on chicken and meat for BBQ – virtually anything – or simply with olive oil for dipping. Zesty, delicious and nutritiousGIVE A GIFT
Local to Bethlehem, Palestine, these Tree of Life necklaces are handmade to symbolize the Palestinian resilience. Due to its own resilience to poor weather conditions and its ability to live with little water, the olive tree bears many similarities to the Palestinian people and their stand against the occupation of their land. This necklace is made with sterling silver and is made to last just as the People of PalestineGET STARTED
This poster was originally created by Franz Krausz in 1936 as part of a commission by the Tourist Development Association of Palestine as a strategy to encourage Jewish immigration into Palestine. After a series of reprints the print took on a life of its own amongst Palestinians when it became popular in the 90s in the wake of Oslo.
Today, you're likely to see this original print in the homes of Palestinians all over.
You'll likely even find an adapted version including the Apartheid Wall blocking off Jerusalem as an ironic twist to the travel poster.GIVE A GIFT

There are three ingredients in the soap: virgin olive oil, water, and lye which is cooked for three days until a thick mixture forms.
