“AVPE has opened product sourcing opportunities for us that previously seemed inaccessible. In 2016, I launched a new business—mebl | Transforming Furniture—the centerpiece of which is a global representation of beautiful furniture handcrafted from reclaimed wood and metal. We are trying to promote greater sustainability in the furniture industry. My colleagues and I had been eager for two years to source furniture from talented Palestinian furniture-makers, but honestly, we were having trouble making inroads. Since beginning to collaborate with AVPE, the ball is now rolling! We have begun discussions/negotiations with one promising Palestinian design shop that makes handsome furniture from used materials. Thank you AVPE!”
