Makers Unite is an Amsterdam-based collective that brings together locals and ‘new comers’ with refugee backgrounds. Together, locals and new comers get to know each other while making a unique collection of bags and accessories made from up-cycled life vests left by migrants on their way to Europe. The program promotes social inclusivity, while also developing and leveraging newcomer’s skills in order to help them find more permanent and fulfilling employment in the Netherlands.
