Our social business activities offer job opportunities to experienced workers and/or former ANKAA students.
Our products reflect and promote sustainability for the people, the project and the planet.

We use upcycled, local or organic materials and try to implement the principles of circular economy in all our processes. We offer an ethical working environment and a fair wage to our makers.

Our Journey Unfolded:
The ANKAA Project Timeline

What does ANKAA mean?

The Ankaa star is the brightest star in the constellation of Phoenix, a symbol of rebirth, renewal and hope.

From Arabic and Latin roots, Ankaa stands for the 'star of the skiff', guiding the way for travellers of the sea.

Together we want to light a new path for travellers fleeing war and persecution, as they continue to write their stories and build their futures.
