Refugee women's support group sews custom scrubs for Swedish
Refugee women's support group sews sustainably made scrubs for local hospital

The Refugee Artisan Initiative (RAI) has teamed up with Swedish Health Services to provide custom made, sustainable medical scrubs. The scrubs are custom fit for each health care worker's unique size, embroidered with their names, titles, and even military veteran status.  In some instances, the scrubs are delivered faster and at a lower cost than orders filled from overseas. All garments are made by refugee or immigrant women learning sewing and small business skills through RAI.
