Meet the FounderZeina Abou Chaaban
While looking for a way to help female Palestinian refugees in camps in Jordan and Lebanon, Zeina decided to empower them by offering them a job. Through this idea she launched her fashion line, Palestyle, which produces Arabic-inspired accessories. Zeina employs the refugees to use their skills and craftsmanship, adding traditional embroidery and designs on the fashion pieces. The number of refugees is increasing in the Middle East and Zeina firmly believes the way to help is through employment.
At the core of the business, Palestyle’s mission is the empowerment of refugee women through job opportunities . Helping the community with social development projects that have long term impact on the infrastructure and quality of life. Palestyle has empowered 100 refugee women with job opportunities. In addition, a percentage of the entire collection’s sales is extended on execution of social development projects on the ground which Palestyle leads with experts and partners like the Olive Tree Plantation in West Bank and Water Tack Exchange Program in Al Baqaa Camp – Jordan.
