One of the most committed and reliable UK stockists of Palestinian products is Hadeel, a certified fair trade shop based in Edinburgh that sources goods primarily from the West Bank and Gaza. ‘Hadeel’ (which means the cooing of a dove in Arabic) supports many small producer groups – particularly women – in places across Palestine such as Beit Jala, Beit Sahour, Hebron and Ramallah. The shop works closely with Zaytoun in the UK.
Hadeel sells a wide range of products including food, jewellery, embroidery, olive wood and ceramics. There are also books and DVDs, products for children, cards and stationery, and religious items. These include items for Christmas. To see the full range of products you can visit Hadeel’s website and you can keep up to date via their e-newsletter or Facebook page.
Please also note that Taj the Grocer in Western Road in Brighton usually stocks a range of products from Palestine, including Zaytoun items.
