Textiles that Talk

Meet Tooteh, a grassroots organization founded in 2006 in Amman, Jordan.

The organization was founded in 2006 by Wowed Al Tanmeya in Jabal Al-Natheef, a low-income area in East Amman. Often unable to communicate themselves verbally, artistic mediums offer these teenagers the chance to express themselves through different artistic mediums in a community of their peers.

The canvases we used in our collection were a collaborative effort of all the young students in the program. Each painting was worked on until every member of the team was happy with the result… and we were exceptionally happy with the results!!

The chairs offer a rare glimpse into the minds of a part of society that is all too often quite, and provide a place for their voices to be heard … and their smiles to be seen :)
