Spring Palbox is here !

You are invited to experience the best artisanal products Palestine has to offer!

Every quarter at Palbox we pack a box with a bottle of organic, fair trade Palestinian olive oil, za’atar, olive oil soap, a Palestinian art or craft and a piece of sterling silver Arabic calligraphy jewelry. Featured in this month’s box are sterling silver earrings which say “habibti” or “my love” in Arabic.

Introducing PalBox !

Our solidarity community is growing and has made much positive progress over the years like the rise of the BDS campaign, an increase in campus activism and the increased visibility of Palestinian voices in the media.

With that in mind I’ve partnered with the Northern California chapter of the International Solidarity Movement (NorCal ISM) to bring you Palbox!
