Economic opportunity: We strive to provide economic opportunities to all skilled refugee artisans. We aim to promote their skills and products so they can reach the right audience and earn the most from their goods.   

Creativity: We strongly encourage creativity in all our artisans. We provide them with donated fabric and notions, and once in their hands, the possibilities of what they do with them are endless, resulting in beautifully unique pieces.

Empowerment: Allowing artisans to have creative freedom, pricing decision-making, and immediate access to sales income, we hope to empower our artisans and give them the freedom to grow and work more independently.
