Modern Syrian Folk Art

Shop Now


Handmade in America

Aida Dalati and Tulip Kurdi have teamed up to celebrate their rich Syrian heritage by resurrecting traditional embroidery and sewing folklore, pulling from imagery and themes from the five major Syrian dynasties (beginning with the Umayyads of Damascus and ending in 1400AD with the crumbling of the opulent Mamluk era). 

These commissioned projects are collaborations between American artists, Syrian-American volunteers, and Syrian refugees. The project seeks to empower, educate, and cultivate an international community through the arts–bringing together women from the Turkish refugee camps, California, New Jersey, Holland. And counting.

Please help us celebrate the good life and prosperity for all with this handmade carefully designed collection.



Art Changes Lives

Designs using fashion textiles and modern needle art are hand sewn by Syrian refugee guests in the USA, Turkey, Idlib and beyond. Your contributions and purchase directly support Syrian women in America by providing an income, independence, and happiness all around. Our Staten Island, New York and Menlo Park, California workshops gather both American volunteers and Syrians to create Syrian heirloom worthy folk art craft items.
