R E B UIL DIN G L I V ES GAIA creations are handmade by refugee women resettled in the U.S, after being forced to flee their countries due to violence & oppression. We aim to provide dignified, living wage employment to help them create brighter futures in a new country. R ES P E CTIN G TH E E A R TH The collection is centered around textiles, the majority of which are vintage & repurposed. From our hangtags printed on recycled paper using soy-based ink, to the sustainable organic hemp used in our text pouches, we strive to minimize our footprint on the planet as much as possible. G LO B A L We have begun to partner with artisan groups in impoverished countries to source handwoven textiles, broadening our social impact through providing income in areas that need it most. LO C A L The GAIA collection is crafted by refugee women right here in Dallas, TX. Through continued training & development, our goal is to lead these resilient women to financial independence and self-sufficiency in our own local community.
