Akkadian Collection

The name AKKADIAN comes from AKKAD, a city in Ancient Mesopotamia. Today it includes parts of Iraq, Turkey and Syria. The Akkadian Collection is the first offering of an innovative program helping to create economic opportunities for Iraqi women through entrepreneurship and handcrafting artisan products for sale all over the world. The project has grown to include vulnerable women all over Iraq, including war widows, internally displaced women fleeing ISIS, and religious minorities.
