I love our Shatila collection. It's so elegant. And it's all made by us.
Samar is Shatila Studio’s tailor.
Born in 1992 in Homs, Syria.
When the war broke out Samar’s family fled to Jordan. But Samar stayed behind with her one year old son who was sick and needed medication. She eventually had to flee, too, but she couldn’t travel to Jordan. So she ended up in Shatila. She has not seen her family for six years but has learnt that both her father and brother have died. Samar was one of the 9 women who set up the women’s workshop in 2013. She worked as embroiderer for three years, and then underwent training as a tailor.
