Dast’Khat, an apparel line of products made by deaf artisans, sells both clothing and an ideal. Proceeds from sales provide scholarships for students in the Deaf Reach School program, transforming consumers into benefactors with each purchase. Dast’Khat was born with the idea to provide high-quality products, as well as careers for skilled students who ultimately graduate from a Deaf Reach School and enter the local job market – a daunting challenge for someone who is deaf. Their training in sewing, embroidery and design starts when they are in class five, and upon graduation, they can then be employed in the Dast’khat line.
Every Dast’khat product is not only a unique and beautiful hand-made item, but also creates an empowering circle that continues to give and benefit others.
