#SEW X ToH for Palestine.
We are thrilled to release the new Olives in Solidarity Tee-shirt, in support of Palestine and whose proceeds will be given to the Palestinian Children's Relief Fund (PCRF). The Tee-shirt features a hand-embroidered olive branch design and a quotate by the extraordinary Palestinian poet, Mahmoud Darwish, carefully silk-screen printed on each piece. By pre-ordering a Tee-shirt today, you will provide the PCRF with much-needed funds for medical aid for children.
The Olives in Solidarity Tee-shirt is a continuation of The Sahara Collection's #SEW (Sahara Empowers Women). Under #SEW, we work with organisations and projects that support women by strengthening skills, creativity and creating employment and income.
Our T-shirts are produced by the local women at our factory and are hand-embroidered by the women at Threads of Hope (ToH), an independent training and production centre, founded by Malaika Linens, for hand-embroidery, corded work and khayameya. ToH trains around 40 underprivileged Egyptian and refugee women, every two months and once proficient, the women are offered work at the centre. Currently ToH employs 160 women by providing income, skill and the ability to work from home.
