How do you find the craftspeople you work with within Palestine? How much are they paid?
The artisans who create the embroidery on ADISH’s garments are formed of groups in several locations in Palestine.
Qussay, ADISH’s production manager in Occupied Palestine, manages ADISH’s relationship with the artisans. ADISH pays three times the market rate on each Tatreez pattern embroidered, and all materials and tools are provided directly to the artisans in their homes, where they work. Through word of mouth and introductions, the groups have expanded, and the number of artisans employed has grown alongside ADISH.
