To empower a woman is to empower a community, a generation, a better future.

Through thick and thin our priority has remained the same, to support our impactful operations and advocate on key issues affecting displaced persons.
Even though in 2021, the stress of unknown circumstances created challenges around every corner, our tribe of customers and community support has made us stronger than ever.
But - 2021 has been a hard year for the people of Afghanistan, Syria and Sudan, amongst other African countries. It has made us all the more grateful to be alive and be able to assist communities in need of help, now more than ever.
It has also been the year that you have shown up in a HUGE way!
By buying our products, you continue to support our artisans through your purchases. Your support creates sustainable and equitable jobs. You are supporting refugees as they assimilate into American society, and work their way towards being financially independent.
As we look forward to 2022, we choose to embrace our new strength we feel after overcoming each challenge and celebrating every success.
Neococo is stronger than ever before.
We are excited to share with you that this year we are working on an exciting creative shift. Our products will not only reflect the diversity within our Neococo culture, but we will also be expanding our products into home and design. This will allow us to work with both local and international artisans, supporting the economy in disadvantaged communities by bringing incredible handmade items to you.
Not only will Neococo continue to release new creative collaborations, we will be working with more organizations and community programs to hire women.
There is a depth to the issue of the refugee crisis, displaced and oppressed people, that we will never be able to fix alone. Together as a community, we can shift the way business can make an impact. By empowering economies through craftsmanship, education, and embracing cultural diversity. Together we can aim to redefine the purpose of business in 2022.
Thank you for being a part of our Neococo Tribe!
Cheers to looking forward to 2022!
