Sunbula: A Palestinian fair trade organization that promotes traditional handicrafts.
[AS ALWAYS PLEASE GO TO THE LINK TO READ GOOD ARTICLES IN FULL: HELP SHAPE ALGORITHMS (and conversations) THAT EMPOWER DECENCY, DIGNITY, JUSTICE & PEACE... and hopefully Palestine]
We are a Jerusalem-based nonprofit Fair Trade organization that supports Palestinian craft producers -- women‘s groups, artisan cooperatives and disabled people‘s organizations. By promoting traditional handicrafts locally and internationally, we support economic self-help efforts of those living in difficult conditions in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, and the Palestinian minority inside Israel.
Sunbula is Arabic for "spike of wheat," the flower that makes bread. As the name symbolizes, Sunbula helps people provide themselves with the gift of a more dignified life.
Each one of our product is made by hand with care, and in the spirit of preserving Palestinian craft traditions.
Come shop at our 2 fair trade shops in Jerusalem or visit our Online Craft Market for hundreds of beautifully crafted items -- Palestinian embroidery, olivewood carvings, home decors, jewelry, and more!
