FOLK ART MAVENS | Handcrafted Palestinian Gifts
Folk Art Mavens is committed to bringing you the best in Palestinian handcrafted gifts. We travel to cities, villages, and refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and Lebanon to locate individual Palestinian artisans, small family businesses, women's cooperatives and non-profits who create unique, quality crafts.
We pay the artisans a fair wage and help bring their products to market. Each time you buy a product from Folk Art Mavens you know that you are helping to preserve a traditional art while improving lives.
Preserving Tradition... Improving Lives
