Ami Mckay Launches Pillows Handmade by Syrian Refugee


Dubbed the #PURESyriaCollection, the series of one-of-a-kind cushions are sewn by Salma Mohammad, a Syrian woman who landed in Vancouver with her family in March after being displaced from her home country last year. They’re crafted from an assortment of vintage, new, and re-purposed fabrics—many of them decorated with bright pops of colour—that McKay and a friend have collected from around the world over the years.
