Handmade collection made in Palestine. Style bracelets individually or together to accessorize your outfits!
In the Arab-Israeli War of June 1967, Israel occupied the Palestinian territories of the Gaza Strip, West Bank, and East Jerusalem. Since that time, Palestinians living in these areas have been suffering economically. Many Palestinians, especially women, don’t have access to fair paying jobs. According to The Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, just 16% of all working-age Palestinian women living in the West Bank and Gaza participated in the labor force in 2020. Having access to a fair paying job ultimately restores hope in the life of a Palestinian female. And here at Love Nisa, our goal is to provide this hope. Hope for prosperity. Hope for freedom. Hope for Jews and Palestinians to live together in peace and harmony.
The Significance of our Palestine Charms:
In 1948, many Palestinians lost their homes and became refugees. However, many of these Palestinians continued to carry their home keys as inspiration and hope for when they could return home. For many Palestinians, the key is symbolic of this right to return.
The Hamsa Hand:
The Hamsa hand, otherwise known as the Hand of Fatima, is an important symbol in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. In Arabic, the word derives from “khamsah,” which means five, ultimately referencing the five fingers on the hand. The hand is symbolic of protection in all three religions and represents female power and strength.
The Olive Tree:
Palestinian territories have olive trees that date back to around 4,000 years ago that remain today. These drought resistant trees have remained for years and represent the Palestinian people’s devotion to their homeland. Additionally, the olive trees have provided economic prosperity for the Palestinian people, as they are planted in 48% of agricultural lands in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The olive tree is a Palestinian symbol of resilience.
