Kuchinate Collective

The Kuchiinate collective is a collection of African asylum-seekers living in Tel Aviv who design crochet products. With all the proceeds from their sales going directly to the non-profit supporting female asylum seekers from Africa in Tel Aviv, we work in an entirely non-profit framework with them.”
Kuchina is located in an industrial space, designed as a working complex for a workshop by the architect Yitzhak Rapaport in the 1960s, and now houses mainly artists and designers.

In a visit that will include an Eritrean coffee ceremony, a knitting circle, and a conversation, the women will discuss the collective that provides them with income from knitting baskets, learning crocheting lessons, and sewing textile products from magnificent African fabrics, as well as serving as a community center and a source of support for them and their children.
