The company aims to “wage our own peace process, by creating together an against-the-odds partnership that defies politics in favor of beauty, common sense, an shared economic benefit.”

Comment on this company's goals. Should there be more synergies like this?

What a courageous and beautiful idea from the American couple. I admire this couple and I hope their collaboration becomes a success. I looked at the site and I like the dresses and bags.

Wow! Israel, Palestine and US working on fashion! Truly remarkable! I didn't think this was possible.

It's nice to see a different news coming from Israel and Palestine. Whenever I see them in the news, I see violence. Hopefully, there could be more joint venture between the two countries.

I think a lot of world leaders could learn a thing or two from these two. I would love to buy their product to show my support for their goals.

I actually bought a bag from them and it really has nice workmanship. I would give them as gift to friends this Christmas to support this cause. You should too! :)

Great cause! I would definitely support them. If only more people used fashion as a platform for change.

Fashion is a great vehicle for change. Hopefully, a major fashion company supports Two Neighbors Fashion so that it can be known worldwide. That way, more women from these two countries can have work and have better future.

Though a very good initiative, the rift between Palestine and Israel is too deep to be even touched by Two Neighbors Fashion.

While this company may not change the tension between Israel and Palestine, we can still appreciate the beauty of the collaboration of these two different cultures.
