Syria, Sabbara, Iman Cushion Cover
Product name: Iman
Type of product: Cushion cover with traditional Syrian embroidery, made by refugee women artisans
Description (story of the item):
The Iman cushion represents a modern twist on a traditional design, a pattern that could be found in almost any home in Syria, especially in the south. This cushion was lovingly hand-embroidered by one of our Syrian refugee woman artisans in Lebanon. This work provides a crucial income, but is also flexible and enjoyable, bringing women who have lost everything together in a supportive community. Our artisans, many of whom have only the most basic literacy skills, are incredibly proud to create works of beauty that bring joy to others. Despite the financial crash in Lebanon, which has caused hyperinflation and sent the price of food soaring by over 400% in the past two years, through this work our artisans are secure, paying for rent, food and schooling for their children.
