MADE51 is a new and exciting lifestyle brand of beautiful home décor and fashion items that merge contemporary design with traditional skills. Each product in the MADE51 collection is handcrafted by a refugee artisan who lives in a hosting country in Africa, Asia, Europe or the Middle East. Each piece tells a story of skill and perseverance that resonates with today´s consumers. MADE51 is brought to life by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
MADE51 design is derived from the valuable skills, traditions and heritage of refugee artisans and their countries. This creates a unique, curated collection that is sourced from unusual locations.
To give refugees access to the market and to ensure orders are handled professionally, UNHCR partners with export-ready social enterprises who work locally with refugee artisans. Together, they produce a line in the MADE51 collection and deliver on orders. Retailers can be part of the solution to the global refugee crisis by including refugee artisans in their supply chains.
