Hadeel, which is Arabic for “the cooing of a dove”, is a distributor and retailer of Fair Trade Palestinian crafts. It aims to provide a sustainable source of income for craftspeople working with social enterprises in the West Bank, Gaza, as well as one in Galilee and another in the Negev. Its work also helps to sustain infrastructures, as many of the producer groups also provide health, education and emergency services in their communities which lack any form of local government which might do this.
It is a member of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers, and supplies other fair trade shops and individual fair traders on a wholesale basis. Palestinian handcrafts have always been living examples of ethnic art deeply rooted in Palestinian folklore and have now become a symbol of the people and their striving for a normal way of life with a national identity.
