RAI partners with refugee and immigrant women to foster an inclusive, prosperous transition to the US through artisan skills training and small batch manufacturing.
Artisan Spotlight: Diba
Diba moved to the U.S. 4 years ago with her husband and 5 children, and has been with RAI for 9 months. Though from Afghanistan, she lived in Turkey for 4.5 years while waiting for entry into the states. While living in Turkey, she found work in an apparel workshop, where she learned to sew on industrial machines.
Diba has brought her expertise, hard work, and dedication to RAI, and her beautiful, exquisitely sewn marketplace items showcase her unique talent and colorful style.
