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!
