Where and how are Adish’s collections made?
Most of Adish’s collections are made locally in Palestine and Israel, and the center of the design is around traditional Palestinian techniques in the region. This means our supply chains are short, and we can build solid person-to-person relationships. Palestinian craftswomen in Ramallah, Dheisheh refugee camp, and Hebron produce hand-sewn Tatreez. Each garment is sewn with the location where it was embroidered and the name of the women’s embroidery group that produced the Tatreez. Having partnered with the Lakiya Weaving Factory in the Negev, Adish’s collections also feature embroidery, weaving, and tassels made by craftspeople from Bedouin communities working with their traditional methods.
It's important to note that the denial of Palestinian people's basic human rights for freedom of movement by Israel is affecting every aspect of life for most Palestinians. In a faint shadow of this reality, Adish production is made complicated by the inhumane checkpoints, road blockages, and ID checks.
