Melkite Pastoral Center

The Melkite Pastoral Center was established in 1988 during the first Intifada (Palestinian uprising) in the city of Ramallah. The center gives income-generation opportunities through sewing and embroidery work to more than 180 women from 17 villages and 2 refugee camps in the central West Bank.

The products are inspired by traditional designs that decorate Palestinian women's dresses, and symbolically represent the hills, trees, and flowers of the country.

Sunbula

A Jerusalem-based non-profit fair-trade organization, Sunbula is a platform that empowers marginalized communities in the West Bank, Gaza, and Palestinian communities within Israel through traditional artisanal crafts.
