Woven out of single-plied, orange life jacket fabric
Symbol of welcome and acceptance for refugees
Thistle Farms has partnered with I AM YOU and Lighthouse Relief to help women refugees gain economic freedom. The welcome mats are woven from the fabric of the life jackets worn by the refugees on their journey to Greece.
This project serves as a symbol of acceptance and solidarity with refugees. Thank you for joining us in the belief that love is the most powerful force for change in the world.
Becca Stevens and a small group from Thistle Farms will be traveling to Greece in April where they will work with the women in the refugee camps. The group hopes to return with finished products (which may look slightly different than the photo displayed) to be shipped out in the beginning of May.
