The Women of Hebron co-operative provides work for women in the Idna district of Hebron in the occupied West Bank. The women produce beautiful hand-woven and hand-embroidered traditional rugs, cushion covers and other handicrafts, which they sell in the Old Hebron market. The initiative creates work and hope for some 120 women and their families in a city which is frequently at the centre of tensions and violence.
Laila Hasan, co-founder of the co-operative, will be speaking about their work and achievements as a form of grassroots, peaceful resistance to occupation and oppression. There will also be the opportunity to purchase some of these lovely artisan products.
