Joria aims to spread alternative narratives about contemporary Palestine and reflect upon the function of creative practices in situations of conflict. The design label, founded in 2012, presents and sells useful goods from Palestine, designed by contemporary designers and artists in collaboration with local producers and artisans.
These products are produced by women who are taught embroidery and sewing skills. Through these creative hands-on activities they have been able to reduce stress and anxiety, as well as use their newly learned skills to gain income to support their families.
All products are carefully made stitch by stitch by the skilled hands of the Syrian, Palestinian and Jordanian women from the vulnerable communities in Jordan. Your support/purchase will help to create a better tomorrow for each one of them.
