Female refugee hand-embroider old clothes for a new look

post-image
The Alsama Studio is a social enterprise run in the Bourj al-Barajneh refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon. The director of the studio is herself a refugee, and a recent partnership with Larissa von Planta, who was trained at Central Saint Martins, has resulted in the LVP x Alsama Project. Fashion lovers send much-loved items of clothing to the studio for upcycling, with hand stitched embroidery patterns. Each upcycled piece is unique, and customers can collaborate on their designs. Embroidery colours can be chosen by the clients or left up to the artisans. https://alsamaproject.com/shop/
