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 Canadian made
What we've created:
Handmade headbands, totes and scrunchies! That's right, the latest fashion trends that are totally
approved by fashionistas everywhere. We've taken these iconic accessories and modernized them
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 values of sustainability fashion.
Each piece 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 our beautiful locally made products and what they represent.
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
