EMPOWERING WOMEN

Our jewellery project started in 1997, with the aim of giving back to society by educating and training women in the basic skills of jewellery making and beading, ultimately giving them gainful employment. 

Working from home, and in their own time, we have seen our artisans develop their skills over the years to the highest standard.

The artisans in our studio now number over 25, who not only make jewellery but also sew the beautiful pouches that they come in. They now manage themselves and their production at our workshop in Mugablein, Amman.

During the lockdown due to Covid, we diversified our interests to include the embroidery skills of our artisans, who started making pouches and now are making beautiful scarves on cotton, linen and raw silk. This project has empowered a further 40 women in Amman and its outskirts, who all work from home.
