      From refugee to artisan

      Most of the women in the Tight Knit Syria collectives had to leave their belongings behind when they escaped the war in Syria. They brought with them the knowledge of traditional skillsets like embroidery, crocheting, and knitting—passed on from their mothers and grandmothers—which they now use to earn a living with Tight Knit Syria. These are some of their stories.

      Collective Locations

      We work with two collectives, consisting of 25 artisans each. One is based in Olive Tree Camp, Syria, and the other in Shatila Camp, Lebanon.

      We aim to create an environment of dignity and productivity even in exile, until our artisans can safely return to Syria to rebuild life at home. So the women set their own prices on items to ensure they receive fair compensation for their labour. They also choose their own hours and work from home because most of them are mothers to young children and have to combine work with other responsibilities.


      *Since most of our artisans do not like their photograph to be taken for safety or privacy concerns, we have created illustrations of them instead.
