Zaytoun Olive Twig Basket, called Qirtalla. A traditional Palestinian hand woven basket made from olive tree twigs. This is an attractive and functional basket. Qirtalla making is an ancient tradition in Palestine that persists in few villages in the Ramallah and Jerusalem area. Crafters are olive growers and the Qirtallah making is an activity that goes hand in hand with olive orchard maintenance. Crafters use the olive branches that grow on the bottom of the tree trunk that become harmful to the fruit bearing branches if not pruned.
