Syria, Sabbara, Sama Cushion Cover
Product name: Sama
Type of product: Cushion cover with traditional Syrian embroidery, made by refugee women artisans
Description (story of the item):
This design is based on a traditional Syrian pattern, but we have given it a modern twist by using glowing colours for a radiant look. It was lovingly made by one of our Syrian refugee women artisans. A labour of love, it not only helps a refugee woman find a dignified living, but provides a supportive community through our sewing circle, and a creative outlet for trauma.
One of our refugee artisans, Juhayna, says: "My work means a lot to me because it was a kind of transformation in my life. In the beginning I worked just to bring an income into my house. But after that the work became a part of my life, it became something in my blood. I became happy when I started working with Sabbara, when I became part of this team. I love the women I work with very much. They are a kind group. We work hard and we enjoy it, and at the same time, this work is helping us a lot."
