About

A working friendship

Ahmad & Daniel have been friends for over a decade, and set up several projects together. Among others, they cater organized tours to the Palestinian Bedouins (JahalinTours). Ahmad, as a Bedouin, likes to share his traditional culture, and Daniel brings in some more practical sides.

They joined Sawsan, who runs the Peace Center for Palestinian Heritage in the desert town of Al-Eizariya (Palestinian Authority). Together they promote Palestinian and Bedouin clothing and crafts.

Sawsan is in contact with about 25 Palestinian women, who make the beautiful embroidery in their homes, or sometimes in the Center. For most of these women this is their sole source of income.

Please, take a look around and see if you can find something of your liking.
