Syrian Traditional Craft|Handmade Leather Teddy Bag

Palmyra, a 2000-year-old city lying to the northeast of Damascus, was one of the two cities famous for sandals in Syria. The Wadah family had lived in Palmyra for generations, and Wadah’s Leather Sandals Shop was a well-known landmark. They lived a comfortable life before the outbreak of the civil war. However, the outbreak of the civil war and the subsequent spread of the Islamic State destroyed ancient monuments profoundly affected the lives of civilians. Many Syrians risked their lives crossing the borders. Wadah and his family spent all their money and fled to Türkiye. He became a low-wage worker ($1 a day), desperately trying to feed his family.

Seven years after Wadah came to Türkiye, he met the Founding Director of the Taiwan Centre, Mr. Chiu. Chiu knows Wadah was a skillful leather worker. Thus he asked Wadah, “What products can you make with leather besides sandals?”


“Everything.” Wadah smiled.


That’s how the brainchild of Wadah and Cho  the Teddy Bag  was born.

Chiu provides Wadah with essential tools, a desk, and a heater. And Wadah creates cute bags using an old skill passed down through generations. Now, Wadah’s 12-year-old son learns leatherworking from his father, cutting and punching leather during his spare time. The Teddy Bags, made in three different sizes, are inspired by the three makers: Wadah, his apprentice, and his son.


The Teddy Bag is not just a bag.

It symbolizes the resilience of the Syrian people and the start of new life.
