Description (story of the item):
The joy of wearing a piece of art! The craftsmanship of the embroidery on these beautiful kaftans is incredible, you truly feel honoured to wear one. Belted or unbelted, they have a classic timeless quality and will never go out of style.
Our kaftans are embroidered by 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.
