Shop beautiful handmade tea towels and napkins with hope sewn at the centre by this Northern Irish social enterprise.
The inspiration behind Sewn is a belief that everyone deserves a bright future that’s filled with hope, dignity and creativity. They help make this a reality for survivors of human trafficking on their Sew and Skill programme, through which all of Sewn’s items are made.
Survivors face many barriers that stop them moving on with their lives, including employability and developing skills for work. Joining the programme gives them a chance to upskill and enhance their CV.
This is more than just a way to prepare for work though. The Sew and Skill programme offers survivors a creative outlet and a way to build confidence within a friendly community. It’s a stepping stone on their ongoing journey to freedom and that brighter future.
All profits from Sewn products go back into Flourish NI, the charity behind the brand, to further support survivors of human trafficking through services ranging from helping with debts and loans to finding safe accommodation.
The tea towels and napkins are durable and made to last using quality Irish linen, arriving to you in plastic-free packaging. We love the option for personalised lettering on their oatmeal tea towel.
Elizabeth and Jill formed Flourish NI after identifying a gap in long term support provision for survivors of modern slavery.
At the centre of what Flourish believes is that every survivor deserves long term tailored and sustainable support to be able to move on to lead a safe, independent, resilient life. In keeping with their mission, they set up Sewn as a way to provide survivors with opportunities to learn new skills and become part of a creative community.
