MEET OUR WOMEN
The Newcomer Collection
Our makers are truly the heart and soul of our products. They are apart of every step of the design and
production process. I encourage our team to constantly be creative and use their cultural backgrounds
and individual styles to inspire our products. This is absolutely reflected in each piece.
We hope you will feel connected to Femme Faire's Collection and what it represents.
Meet the makers:
As many of you know, I've spent years working with newcomer families and am so honoured to now
be leading this exciting effort to support and empower these women. Meet The Team: Rima, Roula,
Wajdan & Marian. A group of strong and proud mothers. They are thrilled to be in Canada and looking
forward to a happy life filled with hope and possibilities. These women, along with being amazing mothers
are absolutely skilled makers and we are so lucky to have them apart of the Femme Faire team.
Why your support matters:
Canada has long welcomed newcomers, especially women and children who escape abuse, inequality, war,
and poverty to bravely begin a new life in this country. When transitioning into their new lives, finding
employment can be challenging due to language barriers, lack of skills and experience, limited resources
and overall culture shock. Femme Faire is proud to offer meaningful work to refugee women to create
beautiful one of a kind handmade products while empowering our new sisters.
By supporting Femme Faire, you are supporting a life of hope and dignity for these
women along with supporting #fairfashion & #slowfashion
Femme Faire supports refugee women from all over the world who come to Canada
for a better life for themselves and their children
