We create bespoke needle work – tailor, embroidery and crochet work. Our customers include a range of international individuals and institutions including the US company Cargill, Italian corporation Barilla, Lebanese designer Rana Salam, the Ana Doll Collection, and Spanish shoe designer Gioseppo.

We want to truly thank the dedicated women for the work. Each thread they stitch into our dolls is a beautiful whisper of their hard work, talent and resilience. They have helped us give a loud, powerful voice to our dolls and initiative.

Marianne Moussalli, The Ana Collection, Lebanon

We produce the entire product, such as teddy bears, purses and bags, or a part of the product, such as embroidery work for shoes and shirts. Sometimes the customer brings the design to us. Sometimes we develop the design with them.

We ordered a consignment of scarves as gifts, which were delivered internationally within two weeks. The scarves were beautifully crafted and the recipients were thrilled.

Tarek Mansour, McKinsey Middle East, Dubai

We can execute against large orders since we have access and business relationships with over 1000 Syrian women living in refugee camps across Lebanon skilled in many varieties of needlework.

We are very grateful for the extra effort you took to create the beautiful bags and bookmarks and deliver them in such an efficient manner.

Kristen Anderson, Barilla Group, Italy
