We are the largest social enterprise in the Shatila refugee camp. We are run by Syrian refugee women for Syrian and Palestinian refugee women. We don't outsource. Everything is hand-made in house. We provide a sustainable income for 100 artisans.
Shatila is a refugee camp in Beirut. Set up in 1948 for 3,000 Palestinian refugees, it now houses 40,000 people following the Syrian crisis.
Shatila Studio is run by Syrian refugee women for Syrian and Palestinian women from right inside the camp. The Syrian war has brought us together.
The harsh conditions of Shatila bring forth beautiful needle art. With every stitch our artisans tell their own stories, producing unique, stunning items.
