HAND-STITCHED TEATOWEL BY RAGHDA
£10.00 – £20.00
The teatowel. Such a humble item which everyone needs! Our teatowels are 100% cotton, super good quality and super special. It represents our belief that we are all woven together. Each teatowel has been individually handmade by Syrian refugee Raghda. The embroidered hands by Raghda are hers and husband Ali’s, symbolising threads that tie us together.
Grab one for your kitchen, or for your family and friends. Or use as gift wrapping for something extra unique. All proceeds go back to the maker and programme. See our 3 for 2 offer – buy 3 teatowels for the price of 2.
Handmade by Raghda. With love.
Material: 100% cotton
Size: 50 x 70 cm (approx.)
Design: Each teatowel may vary due to the nature of being handmade
Care note: We use the best quality cotton so you get long lasting use. But it’s a good idea to gentle machine wash to protect the hand-stiching
Raghda is a designer and tailor from Zabadani, Syria. Having fled Syria with the hope of finding a way to reach Europe, Raghda and husband Ali found themselves stuck in Turkey due to Raghda’s health issues. Raghda has diabetes. An infection in her foot was not able to be urgently treated, resulting in the amputation of her leg in 2017. Rehabilitation is a long, slow process and Ali is now a full time caretaker. It’s not possible to find work, and any formal support does not pay the bills. By designing and working from home, craft for Raghda is a vehicle for self-empowerment, happiness in work, and a tool for self-sufficiency.
