ABOUT THE COMPANY
Bebemoss was founded by a French expat living Istanbul, Turkey. She is a mother of three and a self-proclaimed accidental social entrepreneur.
They are what we call a not-JUST-for-profit company. BebeMoss provides sustainable jobs with fair pay to stay-at-home mothers. Most of the women live in the outskirts of Istanbul and in most cases, they have no other chance to make money. Many of the Moms are refugees from Syria, working hard to provide necessities for their families while they rebuild their lives in a new country.
Bebemoss empowers a community of moms in need to produce toys. They created a safe, happy and kids friendly environment, for Moms to work in. Their warm workshop welcomes the Moms and their little ones who have a dedicated play area. Knitters work flexible hours depending on their needs and they can even work from home, this enables them to better balance their other chores and family life. Bebemoss is currently awaiting their certification with the World Fair Trade Organization and already conforms to WFTO standards. Bebemoss is also under the supervision of UNHCR and they're part of the global made.org program.
“Working with refugee and underprivileged mothers is a life-changing experience, it got me right out of my comfortable and privileged expat life bubble into the harsh reality. It helped me understand the challenges faced by those families. As a parent, I firmly believe that each kid should have enough food, the opportunity to learn and an environment to thrive. This is why I created bebemoss, where conscious shoppers like yourself enable us to empower mothers and therefore directly help children thrive.
Helping Mothers support their kids = helping children thrive
Imagine being in a new country without resources to provide for your family. Imagine wondering how you will afford to provide food for your children. While these are the stories of many women, we can help them together."
