Ethical fashion accessories & design objects made entirely by hand by refugee artisans
A project implemented in partnership with the UN Refugee Agency. Design for Peace aims to empower Malian refugee artisans who are in prolonged exile in Burkina Faso. By enriching their own knowledge of crafts with multicultural artistic collaborations, the project aims to strengthen their production and commercialization capacity and improve their socio-economic integration. Design objects and accessories created by the refugee craftsmen accompanied by Afrika Tiss are sold on the local and international market, assuring the artisans a fair and regular income.
