We work with a number of producers based in Palestine. Please read about each one below.

  • Palestinian Olive Oil Soap – Nablus
  • Medjoul Dates – Jericho, Palestine
  • Kufiyas – Palestinian refugees in Jordan
  • Handicraft – A group of women from Nablus in the West-bank, Palestine


A lot of effort goes into making the handmade Nabulsi soap as seen in the photo to the right. This soap is produced only in Nablus, Palestine, and it’s made from Palestinian extra virgin olive oil, a natural sodium compound & water. The procedure takes a couple of weeks in which hot soap mixture is poured onto the factory floors to set and once set, it’s marked for cutting, stamped with the company seal onto each piece, and cut into cubes. The soap cubes then undergo a drying process which can last from three months to a year and involves stacking them in ceiling-high structures resembling cones with hollow centers which allow the air to circulate around the cubes. They are then wrapped individually.

Medjoul Dates

We source our dates from ‘Nakheel Palestine’ in Jericho, Palestine. Nakheel Palestine grew out of a strong commitment to invest in the Palestinian agricultural sector, specifically date palm cultivation, to enable growth of the economy, protect Palestinian land, and introduce high quality Palestinian products into local and international markets.


We are supporting Palestinian refugees in Jordan who have a kufiya factory. For most of the kufiyas produced by them, they hand stitch the tassels on to finish the kufiya to a high standard.

The factory that produces our kufiyas was established in the 1950’s in Jericho, Palestine. After the 1967 war, the owners were displaced and sought refuge in Amman, Jordan where they relocated the factory and continued to produce a wide variety of kufiyas and textiles.


We work with a group of Palestinian women in the West-bank that make embroidered handicrafts, clothing, shoes and accessories for Preserved Identity. Some products are hand embroidered and some are machine embroidered. A lot of these women are unemployed due to the circumstances of the occupation and some are unemployed because they have disabled children that need to be looked after.

By purchasing from Preserved Identity, you are: 

  • empowering these incredible women 
  • giving them opportunities 
  • allowing them and Palestinian culture, heritage, traditions and identity to reach the global market
  • providing them and their families with a source of income (for some, it’s their ONLY source of income).
  • helping us feed children in Gaza.
