Brands and Designers to Shop in Support of Palestine

From Palestinian-owned labels to brands donating proceeds to victims in Gaza.

Given the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Palestine, it is crucial to raise awareness, educate ourselves, and support in any way that we can, whether that be through attending protests, researching or supporting Palestinian businesses. While purchasing products is by no means a solution, for those with the financial means, it’s another way to show support and ensure that your efforts have a direct impact and reach the right people.

As a result, we’ve rounded up a number of both Palestinian-owned brands and other labels that are donating profits that aim to embody resilience, creativity and a sense of community. This is by no means an exhaustive list or a substitute for direct action, but instead, a chance to highlight the brands and designers raising awareness, using their platforms and sharing donations.

Below, we share a number of fashion, beauty and lifestyle labels either owned by Palestinian founders or donating a portion of their proceeds towards supporting victims in Gaza. For more information on what’s currently happening, head to BBC News for detailed coverage. Stay updated on the issue through resources like LET’S TALK PALESTINEIMEUJewish Voice for Peace and Human Rights Watch.

Qatar-based label 1309 Studios recently launched its latest drop, Siren in Motion. For three days, the brand announced that all sales would be donated to Palestinian relief organizations.

At present, the brand is also working on creating a new abaya dedicated to Palestine, with all proceeds once again donated to the Palestinian community.
