About Local Industries

Local Industries was founded in 2012 by Elias and Yousef Anastas. Their keen interest with furniture stems from their architectural work. As Palestinian architects, they were looking for a way to insert local craft techniques to their work. Local Industries’ goal is to offer to an international clientele a highly functional furniture crafted by local artisans. This endeavor aims to reassert the value of local Palestinian labour without freezing it in a traditional and obsolete role or imposing alien standards to its method of work.
