Meet Nadia: Pakistan Apparel Artisan

Nadia-Pakistan Apparel Artisan  

Nadia is the sole supporter of her family and uses her income to support the household and her children’s health.

Nadia moved to the refugee camp with her parents when she was very young. She is now married with three children and has learned to embroider from her mother. She works full time as an embroiderer and makes unique and exclusive pieces for Raven + Lily by hand. She is the sole supporter to her family because it is difficult for her husband to find work. Nadia uses her income from orders to run her house and pay for her health care. Her children are very young and keep her busy. She is hopeful and grateful for continued work, as she knows each order helps support her family’s livelihood.
