When it comes to starting a handicraft business, it really does not require a large amount of money, rather than huge passion for the craft itself and great creativity in the field. This exactly how "Tezzkar" has started. The two brothers Hamdi and Dima Shashaa started their project in 2010 with a capital not exceeding $10 where they started they worked on painting on glass and ceramics made in Palestine, then the project expanded to include different types of handmade products made in Gaza and across Palestine.
After more than 10 years of hard work, "Tezkkar" now embraces more than 15 handicrafts projects, providing high-quality products which are made entirely in Palestine by creative passionate Palestinian people, and where the raw materials used are 100% palestinian.
Since Tezzkar was based in Gaza, the Shashaa siblings have faced a lot of obstacles, including the difficulty to find raw materials, as well as their high costs, the poor economic conditions inside Gaza, and the inability of exporting outside Palestine. Not only that but the siblings couldn't get permits to travel, therefore they had to give up their dreams to participate in international art exhibitions and delivering their products to new markets.
Nevertheless, they continued their hard work with love and passion to produce the most beautiful pieces till they reached the international market via our website.
