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.
