Show Notes

This is the last episode of a series of four about the work of Handmade Palestine and the artisans that they support. In this episode I take you to an olive soap factory in the old city of Nablus where Amjad tells us about this family business and how they are developing new products that include goat and camel milk and very soon also dead sea mud.

Morgan, from Handmade Palestine, visited the women in Nsf Jbeil that run the ceramics center and she interviewed two of the women there.

You can also learn a bit more about the fate of the Bedouins living in the Westbank under strict military surveillance and how they struggle because Israel made it impossible to live their traditional Bedouin lifestyle.
