MADE51 is a project of the UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees), a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities, and stateless people. By pairing refugee artisans with experienced social enterprises in their host country, MADE51 stimulates local economies while fostering a mutually beneficial relationship between refugee artisans and their hosts.
MADE51 works with five refugee artisan groups in Africa. The Rising Sun ornament is crafted by Burundian and Congolese women living in Rwanda. This tiny sweetgrass basket is handwoven using a time-honored weaving technique. The design represents the additional strength and persistence needed to rise again after being forced from home.
Each ornament is individually packaged and ready for gift-giving in a MADE51 box, complete with an artisan story card.
