The Sewing Cooperative
The Sewing Cooperative is one of the first Italian social atelier born with the aim of creating opportunities for refugee tailors to connect their previous professional experience with their new work environment. It is located in Rome and produces bespoke, handmade and handcrafted clothes using recycled fabrics, African wax prints and naturally dyed organic cotton from Burkina Faso and Mali.
