Named for its location, Hebron Glass is located in the historic West Bank city of Hebron. Considered a sacred site for Christians, Muslims and Jews, Hebron is also well-known for its traditional glass-blowing. Hebron Glass operates three main workshops in Hebron, in addition to artisans who work in their own homes. Some 60 artisans, women and men, work with Hebron Glass, earning excellent income and benefiting from safe working environments.
Established in 1890, Hebron Glass is a family business that has expanded over the years and is now exporting traditional glassware and ceramics products. The group aims to build lasting relationships with fair trade associations and provide artisans with orders throughout the year.
All tabletop items created by Hebron Glass are lead-free and safe to use. The group uses recycled glass, but only glass from drinking glasses and heated to a very high temperature to sanitize them. Ten Thousand Villages introduced its first products from Hebron Glass in 2009, including goblets, a decanter and an ornament.
