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.
