The Syrian Crisis

We are witnessing one of the largest humanitarian crises of our time. 

Over 5 million Syrians have been forced to flee to escape violence, only to face poverty and crippling isolation in overburdened refugee camps.
  
One such place is the Chatila camp in Lebanon.

 

"In Lebanon, life is a daily struggle for more than a million Syrian refugees, who have little or no financial resources. Around 70 per cent live below the poverty line." - UNHCR

Untapped Potential

While most Syrian families left home empty-handed, there is one thing many women carried with them as they left their homes.

Incredible skill and knowledge in embroidery.

 

"Our assessments found that the average Syrian woman refugee in Chatila has over 17 years of experience in knitting, sewing, and embroidery."
- Jaron Soh, Founder of Artisan & Fox

Crafting Hope

Beyond the conflict, we saw opportunity.


We began working with this talented group of Syrian women, and together, we created a beautiful line of handmade scarves.

 

"I was inspired by the women refugees in the camp knitting beautiful creations amidst the chaos."
- Dana Kandalaft, Founder of Tight-Knit Syria
