THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Hebron Glass

Country: Palestinian Territories  

Abd Jabari is a painter with Hebron Glass, a family company of glass and ceramic handicraft employing 60 artisans in the ancient city of Hebron. Lying on a pilgrimage route connecting Jerusalem to Makkah, Hebron has since ancient times been both a commercial hub and a city of great religious importance for Jews, Muslims, and Christians.

Tucked into a poor quarter of this oldest of cities, Abd paints the antique floral pattern onto ceramic shapes, making a living in this quiet, most ancient of ways. He sees his art as a way of painting Palestinian culture into the future.

The ornate floral design is an aesthetic staple of Palestinian heritage, curlicuing its way through mosques, homes, clothing—and many thousands of years.
