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
