Having lived in different cultures, I have always been fascinated by that invisible vehicle that makes us love some music, food and languages over others.
I believe in the power of culture in holding people together and introducing us to one another. I believe culture is there to unite us rather than divide us.
I have always celebrated cultures and had friends from different cultures. I did not realize i miss my own culture or lack it until we met again. I found my world lacking and wish to bring back more diverse cultural items into our world.
I visited Syria in 2017 and fell in love with handmade products. I also noticed that hardly anyone buys these items. Maintaining and reviving hand made cultural items became my thing. I try to support local businesses when I travel but believe this is was not enough. The idea of importing cultural items into Canada was born and my passion was ignited.
