Uniqlo to mark World Refugee Day with sales of handicrafts made by refugees

Fashion retailer Uniqlo will mark World Refugee Day on 20 June with its Make a World of Difference campaign.

A collaboration with MADE51, a global brand by UN Refugee Agency UNHCR, the campaign will include an original UNHCR x Uniqlo #WithRefugees Keychain being sold exclusively through Uniqlo online stores in Japan and the US.

In addition, MADE51 pop-up stores will open for a limited time in five Uniqlo stores in Japan and six European countries from 16 June. The pop-up stores will sell MADE51 beadwork, embroidered pouches and other items selected by Uniqlo.

Uniqlo has also published a special page on its sustainability website which highlights its activities to support people fleeing their countries.

Yukihiro Nitta, the group executive officer responsible for sustainability at Uniqlo’s parent company, Fast Retailing, said: “Through our longstanding global partnership with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, we have learned that the best solutions include multi-faceted support for people forced to flee. For example, the provision of goods, financial support as well as vocational training and employment support to help build refugee self-reliance.

“As a company that provides everyday clothing for all, with a desire for peaceful everyday lives, we will continue to support forcibly displaced people until we create a world where no one is forced to flee.”
