Product Description

No need for boring when you can have these amazing coasters on your coffee table or nightstand! The women of Syria have been cross stitching so long, it comes second nature. Their traditional designs are ingrained in their minds, so no patterns are needed, just a simple needle and floss and they can stitch the evening away. Because of this freehand style of stitching, the color placement isn't rigid and structured, but casual and flowing. While a red may be used in one area, that red may vary within the same piece from apple to ruby in a random appearance. Due to this method, every piece will be different and express the individuality of the woman who stitched it. 

In 2011, the conflict in Syrian began, reaching a loss of life exceeding 400,000 in the first 3 years alone. There are currently 11 million displace Syrians due to the conflict, all of whom are struggling on multiple levels. Dancing Fig Imports is focused on assisting this group of artisans. They provide any materials needed that aren’t readily available in the region as well as assistance in product design. They ensure the women are paid fairly and offer an opportunity for income that's currently difficult to find. The artisans gain a sense of control amidst the chaos and a much needed income that will help them past this period of instability.
