HOW IT STARTED
PurePali started in 2018 in Brooklyn, New York. After years of working on unfulfilling graphic design projects for multiple clients I eventually found myself going back to my roots and making designs representing Palestine (something I loved doing as a child). Me, my older brother and sisters all spent five incredible years of our lives residing in our hometown of Beit Iksa, Palestine. For that reason, doing this was not just special to me, it was me. In the process of working on one of these pieces, something clicked. I texted a picture of the design to my brother with the following words: ‘Wouldn’t this look sick on a shirt?’. From that moment forward, we embarked on a journey to introduce PurePali to the world.
