Yousef Lolas

Yousef’s father started his work in 1964. Yousef joined his dad after he finished school because his dad could not rely on anyone else to do his work. Yousef did not continue his education because his family suffered a financial crisis, so he grew up learning and loving the craft that supported his small family. He then got married, had four kids and bigger responsibilities than before, but still manages to create artful pieces with style. Yousef and his father have a hard time promoting their products because of the segregation wall. Palestinians were banned from entering Jerusalem which hindered them from promoting their work there. They are now promoting their products locally and globally through the help of BFTA (Bethlehem fair trade artisans). Beitjala- Sahel Street I
