Refugee story: Iman (Jan 20)

16/01/20

Iman is from Iraq and has 4 children. They have been living in Cyprus for 9 months.

She is an incredibly creative woman, always full of enthusiasm and brings this cheer to the sewing room. She designs and sews her own bags from recycled jeans. All her bags are unique and she puts a great deal of thought and care into each design. She enjoys finishing off the bag with buttons, zips, clips and pockets which she gathers from recycled jeans, skirts and other items.

Her eldest daughter is taking after her mum and has been learning how to sew during the children’s sewing activities.
