Hamdan, the Furniture Carpenter


Hello, I’m Hamdan and I’m a furniture carpenter from Aleppo Syria. After the war I fled to turkey and then came to the United States with my brother and sister, wife, and three kids. Upon my arrival I worked in a poultry plant, however I knew I wanted to make use of my skills as a furniture carpenter.

Syriana was essential in my startup here in the states, providing me with carpentry tools to begin working. They’ve helped provide feedback and understanding of the American market and I’ve been able to create furniture that stays true to my Syrian authenticity. It’s my hope that the passion in my work brings warmth in beauty into your homes.
