Love Welcomes

NY NOW Digital Market


Love Welcomes provides meaningful, compensated work to refugee women who create beautiful home decor and accessories from up-cycled materials including life vests from their journey's and discarded blankets.  The work and pay give women a sense of productivity and purpose, reducing despair and raising self-esteem.  Sales of the products are used to employ women and profits provide access to key services to the community in the camp.

Love Welcomes Vision

Our vision is to change the perception and treatment of refugees around the world with a response focused on dignity, inclusion, and economic and social well-being.  One stitch at a time we are building this community, challenging the inhumane and archaic response models with a loving welcome.  It's easy to get discouraged and feel helpless but the normal thing is to welcome, it is transformational for refugees and also for us.  

Product Principles 

  • Economic and social inclusion for refugees 
  • Living Wages 
  • Handmade with love through weaving, embroidery, crochet, and sewing. 
  • Sustainable for the planet through upcycling of materials and using sustainable certified Greek cotton

Product Categories include Decorative Pillows, Welcome Mats, Wall decor, handbags, and totes


We have had successful partnerships, and are now expanding into wholesale with new partnerships!
