Darb44 presents Ashayer Collective, a design collaboration between artists, designers, and the nomads(Ashayer) of Iran. Our goal is to empower women and girls of nomadic tribes across Iran to be self-reliant. Women’s opportunities to participate in the economy are severely curtailed in many areas by traditional expectations and economic hardship. We educate and collaborate with women and girls by encouraging them to make artistically unique handicrafts. Ashayer Collective travels across the country to raise awareness and provide opportunities. We are excited to see women and girls find new purpose and self-esteem by starting their own small businesses.
On view is a selection of handmade designs reflecting nomadic craftsmanship from traditional techniques and contemporary artists.
