Mint + Laurel is a social enterprise and e-commerce with one vision–to connect highly skilled artisans from the Middle East to an untapped global market.
Mint + Laurel was founded by a group of Syrian-American women and launched in 2019 in Los Angeles. This collective group of creators, problem solvers and dreamers believe in clean living with purpose, with a focus on eco must-haves, like vegan bar soap made in Syria and zero-waste packaging made in America. All woven products are made in collaboration with Abdullah Al Madani, while embroidery pieces are collaborations with Mona & Oula and Zeina. These products aim to preserve an ancient cultural heritage, change the narrative on a region defined by conflict, and provide artisans the opportunity to make an honest living.
