Palestyle: Palestinian Fashion With A Cause
I'm always attracted to the allure of fashion with a cause. Recently I stumbled upon the brand Palestyle. The brand was founded by Zeina Abou Chaaban who is a Palestinian woman living in the UAE. She combines the handmade embroidery of Palestine and Arabic calligraphy with modern fashion sense to create bags, jewelry, wallets, and even clothes that give a Palestinian flair to trendy fashion. Most importantly, the brand strives to empower Palestinian women in the refugee camps of Jordan, Lebanon, and Palestine. A percentage of every sale from Palestyle's collection goes toward the income of these women who work to bring their embroidery tradition to the masses.
