Palestinian culture is very important to us at the Galilee Foundation.
Due to export restrictions from Lebanon we were unable to obtain the masks made by Palestinian refugee women there, so we obtained the fabric from them instead, and our volunteer, Dianne Woodward, has stitched the washable cotton lined masks to a standard pleated square pattern to make keffiyeh masks similar to the original using the same natural materials. There is an inner lining of non woven material to act as a rudimentary filter as well as a pocket for a further filter if desired.
The masks come in a large size (8" x 8" 20cm x 20 cm) and a medium size for smaller faces (7" x 7" 17.5cm x 17.5 cm) so hurry and get yours today.
All proceeds will support our work and Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.
