HC06

Made51: Crafted by Refugees
From the UN Refugee Agency
  • Crafted by Syrian refugee women living in Turkey, this colorful cotton bird is an homage to the national bird of Syria, the Northern Bald Ibis. The bird has symbolized brilliance and splendor since the times of Ancient Egypt, and is now critically endangered. 

    Each ornament is individually packaged and ready for gift-giving in a MADE51 box, complete with an artisan story card.

    Size: approximately 2.4"

    Materials: Linen, thread, glass beads & cotton padding. 

    Note: These products are handmade and there will be slight variations in shape, size, and color.

  • “Refugees have skills and talents that only need a chance to grow and flourish. Within each piece lies a story of history and culture, and the chance for a person who has fled war and persecution to offer something of beauty and style to the world.” - Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees

    MADE51 is a global initiative brought to life by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. Each ornament in the MADE51 Holiday Collection tells a story about the cultural heritage of its maker. These beautiful crafts are windows into the diversity and talent of refugee artisans around the world. They fill homes with meaning, as symbols of solidarity, empowerment and hope.
