Darb44 presents Ashayer Collective, a design collaboration between artists, designers, and the nomads(Ashayer) of Iran. Our goal is to empower young girls and women 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 young girls and women 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 young girls and women 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.
