Ikea will sell rugs made by Syrian refugees
Ikea plans to release a new range of carpets and textiles made by the Syrian refugees in 2019. This initiative is expected to create new jobs for about 200 Syrian refugees living in Jordan, most of them women.

"The situation in Syria is one of the major tragedies of our time, and Jordan took on more responsibility in the accommodation of Syrian refugees ... We decided to examine how Ikea can contribute," said Jesper Brodin, managing Director at Ikea. Jordan took a little over 655 thousand Syrian refugees, according to the United Nations.

Recent UN data show that about 37 thousand work permits were issued in Jordan, Syrian refugees, although many Syrians are working without permits. There is a very low level of employment among women, who are traditionally tasked with caring for children. Ikea said it will work with local organizations to provide a more flexible schedule for women who are caring for family members.

Carpets and textiles will be sold locally and in other markets in the Middle East that have a free trade agreement with Jordan. The Swedish furniture giant said the products will be released in a limited edition.

Work Ikea project was preceded by a decision of the President of trump banned entry of travelers from seven Muslim countries, including Syria, for a period of not less than 90 days. Trump also restricted the total number of refugees that can be admitted to the U.S. by 50 thousand people in 2017. Ikea said on Tuesday the decision of trump. "We support the fundamental rights of all people and does not accept any form of discrimination," he said in a statement.

The company has donated euro 30.8 million ($ 33.3 million) for illumination and renewal energy projects in refugee camps in the middle East, Africa and Asia. Ikea, founded in Sweden, has 340 shops in 28 countries and has about 164 thousand employees.
