The Artisan

This beanie was knitted by Enas, who lives in Istanbul. Before she left Syria's north eastern city of Deir ez-Zor in late 2014, Enas was a government employee. She supports her family by knitting and crocheting for Knitstanbul, and can turn her knitting needles and crochet hook to anything, from jewellery to Remembrance Day poppies.

Impact

Knitstanbul is a social enterprise founded in Istanbul in early 2015, by journalist Malika Browne. Malika discovered Syrian knitting while living in Damascus. Inspired by their work, Malika reached out to the growing number of Syrian refugees coming to Turkey. Knitting is a portable and stress-relieving occupation which allows women to work and earn money while surrounded by their children. Most of the proceeds from Knitstanbul go directly to the knitters. Over the last four years, it has supported over 40 Syrian women in Istanbul and, increasingly, in Europe.

The Design

The small maker’s mark found on each beanie is inspired by the carved wooden stamps used by Syrian bakers to mark their bread.
