Brighten Up with Fair Trade Candle Holders

Check out our new candle holders from SERRV! These hand-painted ceramic candle holders come in a set of 2. They are made by the Holy Land Handicraft Cooperative Society, a group of Palestinian artisans working in the occupied territories on the West Bank of the Jordan River. This producer seeks to create jobs, alleviate poverty, open international markets, and preserve Palestinian handicraft traditions. There are 36 members of the cooperative and an additional 50 non-member workshops that they work with. They create beautiful handicrafts of olive wood, mother-of-pearl, and ceramics.

These candle holders are therefore in a more traditional Palestinian color and design scheme. Jessica noticed that they even match a plate she received from a friend who visited Israel (not that she would be willing to sell you that matching plate, unfortunately).
