JASMINE HEMSLEY X NEEDLE & THREAD
Tailoring and embroidery are offered as vocational tracks for the women we serve in Afghanistan, Iraq and Rwanda. We are delighted to partner with British womenswear brand Needle & Thread, who understand the importance of these skills.
Needle & Thread have collaborated with Women for Women International Ambassador Jasmine Hemsley to create the Jasmine Hemsley x Needle & Thread Elemental collection, launching in time for International Women’s Day. The 23-piece collection is inspired by the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, the ‘knowledge of life’ and the five universal elements which forms the foundations of the Ayurvedic principles; space, air, fire, water and earth. The collection focuses on using recycled materials, as part of Needle & Thread’s commitment towards a more responsibly sourced future.
Needle & Thread are proud to support Women for Women International by making a donation, which is enough to help 200 women learn tailoring as part of our year-long training programme.
2019 – THE PARTNERSHIP BEGINS
Needle & Thread began supporting Women for Women International in 2019 by participating in the #SheInspiresMe Car Boot Sale. Following this, Needle & Thread celebrated Giving Tuesday by donating £10 from every purchase made on the day to women survivors of war.
