Recognizing the importance of empowering refugee artisans and contributing to their financial security, Tribal Textiles is proud to have launched a sustainable range of handcrafted home décor in collaboration with MADE51 and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees UNHCR.
Handcrafted by Congolese refugees in Northern Zambia, these one-of-a-kind pots are handmade from palm and wood. Perfect as a gift or for adding to your eclectic home décor collection, you'll find any excuse to use or display these unique pots carrying a unique story.
Tribal Textiles is a community-based enterprise in Zambia that produces hand-painted textiles, employing local artisans and providing training and support to promote sustainable livelihoods. Through this partnership, Tribal Textiles has been working with refugee artisans to create this collection of handmade products that showcase the unique skills and traditions of refugee communities.
The products are available for sale directly on our website as well as through the MADE51 online platform, which connects refugee artisans with markets around the world, providing them with a sustainable income and an opportunity to showcase their skills and creativity.
By working with Tribal Textiles and other local partners, MADE51 is able to support refugee artisans in developing their skills, accessing markets, and earning a fair income. This, in turn, helps to promote economic independence and social integration, and contributes to the overall well-being of refugee communities.
The partnership between MADE51, UNHCR, and Tribal Textiles is a shining example of the power of collaboration to create positive change in the world. By leveraging the unique talents and expertise of each partner, this initiative is helping to build a more inclusive and sustainable global economy, while empowering refugee artisans to create a better future for themselves and their families.
