About Us

Founded in 2019 by Yaffa local Adrieh Abou Shehadeh, Hilweh Market grew out of an aspiration to reclaim space for Palestinian & Arab culture, in the city's historic Hilweh Street.

Hilweh market is a local artisanal boutique concept store featuring handmade housewares, textiles, and other curated contemporary items from Palestine and the Arab world.

Our space in Jaffa is driven by a passion to showcase the growing contemporary design scene in Palestine and the region defined by our own connection to heritage, history, and place.

We are committed to working through sustainable local partnerships, with Palestinian makers, shops, designers, craftsmen and women to bring you the best of local and regional contemporary craft and design. We help shed light on forgotten stories through beautiful objects while supporting their powerful and creative practices
