MEET OUR

TEAM

The Newcomer Collection

I am so thrilled to announce Femme Faire’s latest project with you! We’ve partnered with some

incredible newcomer women who sought refuge in Canada to bring you our very first Canadian made

Femme Faire product. 

What we've created:

Handmade headbands! That's right, the latest fashion trend that is totally approved by fashionistas

everywhere. They are back in the best way. We've taken this iconic hair accessory and modernized it

with elegant and subtle details and chosen colours and textures that inspire and uplift. And by using a

mix of new, re-purposed and vintage fabrics, we’ve stayed true to our brand which promotes sustainability.

Each headband is a labour of love in the truest sense. This collection represents new beginnings, living in

dignity & pride. We hope you will feel connected to this beautiful product 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 & Meriam A group of strong and proud mothers. Roula and her family were recently sponsored as

refugees to Canada from their war-torn country of Syria. 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

A special thanks to Zeina Adra for your voice, your advocacy and friendship
