These pillow covers were custom-made for Red Thread Life by Syrian refugee women in Lebanon.

Each 48cmx48cm pillow cover is hand-embroidered by women who are working in the Basmeh and Zeitooneh Women’s Workshop. ?The women?s workshops aim to empower women who currently provide financial support to their families and to help restore their sense of dignity. The workshops provide training in embroidery and subsequently allow the women an opportunity to sell their products. The programs are active in Shatilla and Burj al Barajneh camps. In addition to skills building, the workshops offer women awareness sessions on topics ranging from general health to women?s empowerment and women?s rights and responsibilities in the workplace.
