Dandarah is a woman-owned social enterprise based in Montreal, Canada, with a mission to support artisans and sustain traditional crafts.
We work directly with economically and socially marginalized artisans in Egypt, mostly women and minorities, to improve their economic and social conditions by providing employment opportunities, sustainable income and access to international markets.
We partner with local NGOs, artisan cooperatives, and self-employed artisans in different rural areas and inner cities in Egypt to create high-quality handmade products rooted in local age-old crafts, such as hand
weaving, glass blowing and pottery.We work with our artisans on promoting the use of natural materials, and sustainable processes such as recycling and up-cycling.
Dandarah is also a member of 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales
to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment. 1% for the Planet believes that
we can build a better future for all 1% at a time. With every purchase from Dandarah, we can all be 1% better.
Dandarah also partners with MSF Canada by donating 1% of annual sales to support MSF's humanitarian work.
