Hands Up Not Handouts fuses the worlds of sustainable business development and  the luxury consumer market  so that both may benefit from the unique offerings of the other. Our handmade embroidered and woven pieces are created using traditional handicraft techniques of  developing communities in Rwanda and the West Bank of Palestine in new ways.  By providing skills training and paying fair prices for product we provide the partners with the crucial income to build opportunity in their lives.  We highly value innovative craftsmanship and design.  Our dedication to these qualities is reflected in each handmade design.
