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.

Join us for our Annual Oriental Rug Event, featuring over 300 handknotted rugs all made by fairly paid adults, from 2'x3's to 10'x14's. Since our store is not large enough to carry these rugs year round, we host this special event once a year to bring these high quality, fairly traded handknotted rugs to our community from the Bunyaad Rug Room at Ten Thousand Villages, Ephrata, Pennsylvania. It's an event not to miss as these fairly traded rugs represent a win-win situation for all.
