Who We Are
Peace of Thread is a non-profit organization that empowers women who have come to the United States seeking refuge from war, persecution and poverty to make a new life for themselves and their family.
To give a voice to families in vulnerable populations through employment.
The women of Peace of Thread hand make high quality, one-of-a-kind handbags and accessories using top-of-the-line, up-cycled fabrics from the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center. The products are embellished using gently used handbags, belts, jewelry, and buttons.
We seek to bring women from the East and West together for friendship and conversation about peace.
We seek to provide quality training for the less fortunate.
We create an atmosphere for learning English and culture.
We create bags with the highest quality fabrics incorporating repurposed embellishments.
We provide an opportunity for refugee women to find work.
We provide an atmosphere absent of fear where women can discover who they are through mentorship.
We design each the inside of each bag even more beautifully than the outside and teach the women that they were designed in the same way.
We sew and mend, not only physically but emotionally and spiritually as well.
