Description:

This design of text and Olive branches was created in collaboration with, and proceeds will benefit, refugees who crossed the Mediterranean into Italy

This design was created in collaboration with a group of refugees staying at Casa Gialla, a temporary home for refugees in Monasterace, Calabria, Italy. These refugees come to Italy via smugglers, originating from various places throughout the Middle East and Africa. They have survived a harrowing journey by boat across the Mediterranean, spending ten days or more without food on an overcrowded vessel. These people have come to Southern Italy with hope for a future in Europe, escaping religious persecution, war, and desperate poverty. In the summer of 2015, the refugees drew Olive Branches (a symbol for peace and prevalent in Southern Italy) and wrote next to their drawings what they came to Italy for, what their hopes were for the future. These drawings and texts are were combined into a wallpaper textile design, and are being sold to benefit both the refugees that contributed as well as Casa Gialla's rescue efforts. Wallpaper is significant for Monasterace as the dying town is continually repairing walls. The act of the refugees creating a new covering for these walls represents the positive impact and possibility for change that comes with their presence. It is my hope that this wallpaper will further transcend the borders between refugee and Italian. Thank you for your support.
