Ceramic is one of the main traditional crafts in Hebron's heritage and tourism sector. Pottery dates back to a period of not less than 400 years when the Turks first introduced it to Palestine through the work of restoration and rehabilitation of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The city of Hebron was the first to produce porcelain. The first porcelain factory was established in 1968 by Abdul Rahim Jamal al-Tamimi.
This industry has developed over the past decades and Khalil Al-Rahman became one of the most important centers of this craft. Hebron has supplied the tourist markets, festivals and exhibitions with the beautiful antique work and gifts. In conjunction with the city's other craft factories, the ceramic work won the quality certificate at the end of the twentieth century.
