Love Welcomes launched in 2017 in response to the refugee crisis in Greece. The founding principle was simple: create hope from despair. Equip women with the resources to weave welcome mats out of the very lifevests they wore as they fled the dangerous conditions of their homes in pursuit of freedom and safety.
Your purchase creates jobs, which create resources, independence, and confidence for refugee women. By investing in women, you are investing in families and you are investing in the refugee community – meaning access to vital services.
Love Welcomes works with 9 women in the Ritsona Refugee Camp through a weaving social enterprise. The weavers receive a fair salary, while the entire camp benefits from access to legal assistance and food security from the sale of the homewares.

Exfoliate naturally, by removing dead skin cells, excess dirt, oils, and other impurities from the surface of your skin.
These pillow covers are perfect with my new baby sofa. I love the look and the texture. There is just enough sparkle in the gold to elevate the style and the orange strips a perfect pop of color. Well done!
We use the welcome mat for grace circle for our survivors. It's been a well loved tradition in our 1st safe home so we are continuing it in the second. It's wonderful for all of us to use something regularly made by survivors, and is an inspiration to the women currently in our home.
Everybody that comes through my door ( not so many these days Of Covid) comments on the Welcome Mats I have at entryways and bathrooms. I love these floor mats and I love to witness the look on somebody’s face when they hear a little of the backstory. The mats are extremely durable, resilient and beautiful - just like the women refugees that weave them.
