Hand blown glass from the West Bank

Phoenician glass Named for its location, Hebron Glass is located in the historic West Bank city of Hebron, well-known for its traditional glass-blowing. Hebron Glass operates three main workshops in Hebron, in addition to artisans who work in their own homes. Some artisans, women and men, work with Hebron Glass, earning excellent income and benefiting from safe working environments. Established in 1920, Hebron Glass is a family business that has expanded over the years and is now exporting traditional glassware and ceramics products. One of the aims of the group is to build lasting relationships with fair trade associations. Hebron Glass aims to keep their artisans busy throughout the year, despite the challenges of occupation and war, and the competition from China. All tabletop items created by Hebron Glass are lead-free and safe to use. Ten Thousand Villages introduced its first products from Hebron Glass in 2009.
