We hope you are drawn to EVERAND fabrics because they are beautiful, but much of their beauty goes well beyond the surface to the process and makers behind them. We’re sharing the handmade process behind one of our newest pillows, our Amber Striped Hemp.
Judith, a refugee woman living in Chicago, started sewing pillows for EVERAND very early on in our journey and immediately became our go-to seamstress. We interviewed her hoping to give you a small glimpse of her life and truly celebrate the brave and resilient woman she is.
Pillows can be so much more than just an accent piece when they come with a powerful story that supports our global community. This one is rooted in one woman's desire to stay meaningfully connected to family and her love of the Indian craft culture she grew up with. We were so inspired that we wanted to share more of that story with you.
We founded EVERAND® as sisters who also happen to be moms. And on this Mother’s Day, we want to share the story of another female who is a vital part of EVERAND--the 13-year-old who makes our hugely popular bracelet stacks.
“I think giving her an income has really changed her life.”
That’s the best sentence we’ve heard in a while. It’s what RefugeeOne had to say about Don Cing, the woman who sews most of EVERAND’s products. She’s a graduate of the group’s Sewing Studio, which gives refugee women an employable skill and a social lifeline.
We’re excited to introduce you to the organization we love and rely on so much, and really bring to life the good that your purchases enable.
