Love Welcomes


We are proud to make beautiful things, but there is so much more to it than that. We create jobs for women who are refugees and transform refugee lives. This is made possible by our growing community of supporters.

Love Welcomes is a creative social enterprise that helps refugee women begin to stitch their lives back together. Love Welcomes is Community Interest Company (non profit). Launched in 2017 it was created in response to the refugee crisis in Greece.

Today it works in multiple locations supporting refugees in camps and those who have been resettled. Our team of refugee women upcycle materials into beautiful, handmade home products that we sell all over the world. We think big and change one life at a time.

The story behind the business
Meet Love Welcomes

We believe that through a loving welcome, we can inspire a global response based on dignity, inclusion, economic and social well-being. Our vision is to replicate our model of a loving welcome across host communities and refugee camps and through our stories, challenge the negative perception and treatment of refugees.

We believe women who are refugees are powerful changemakers - in fact we know this as on average each woman supports 4-6 other refugees! So through their work and through strategic investments in services, our loving welcome transforms refugee lives throughout the camp. As we grow we are also focusing on our host-community partnerships as we move towards becoming the first employer for many refugees moving into the host-community.
