Women in Hebron
Women in Hebron is a Palestinian nonprofit fair trade cooperative under the Idna Cooperative Association for Embroidery and Handicrafts. Idna is a mid-sized Palestinian city of approximately 25,000 people, located to the southwest of Hebron in the West Bank.
Women in Hebron was established as part of the cooperative association’s efforts to provide women in Hebron district with the resources to provide for themselves and their families through the production and sales of Palestinian handicraft items. Their work is based on the idea that the Cooperative and its products are more than just an income-generating project. It is in of itself an act of community-strengthening, of honoring the role of women in their society, and a means to show sumud – steadfastness.
