“Qanani” (Bottles) was the name of choice for Syrian-Polonian artist and designer Anna Banout’s participation in Poland’s Gdynia Design Days festival.
Anna’s goal is to simply empower Syrian women in refugee camps with a small project they can start to create beautiful products to sell outside the camps. The aim is to improve their income and make them less dependent on aid and subsidies they receive. She hopes that, with their ability to do something about their situation, their psychological well-being will improve.
At the same time, the project contributes to saving the environment by turning plastic bottles into something beautiful.
Anna does not want her project to be a mere participation in a festival. Now, she’s trying to start workshops for women in Germany and Poland to implement that in the real world and hopefully help said women.
