Yasmine Dabbous explores how fabric becomes a psychological, political and economic force for Syrian refugees, the women whose embroidery gave them solace and income. Embroidered patterns from Damascus tiles represent the anchor trauma-inflicted refugees yearn for.
Molly Sinclair McCartney’s photos of her visit to Syria before the war remind us of the life that once was.
