The Pin Project is a global initiative that provides employment opportunities to displaced people, refugees and artisans in Jordan. Exclusively designed by award-winning Canadian designer Jenny Bird and handcrafted by talented Turquoise Mountain artisans in Jordan, The Pin Project kite pin is a truly collectable piece that gives back.
Available in both silver and brass, each pin is beautifully crafted and unique. Mounted on recycled cardstock which is signed by the artisan who made it, each pin is placed inside an undyed Afghan fabric pouch before being shipped.
This initiative originally launched in 2018 by Hedvig Alexander with the support of global organization, including ISHKAR, Millie, Global Goods and raised over $135,000. The Pin Project provides conscious consumers the opportunity to contribute to something meaningful and powerful while purchasing something they love. Proceeds from your purchase are invested back into the artisan and will help raise awareness and funds and encourage self-reliance.
