fascinating talk by Hussein Al-Baiaty. He will discuss “Refutees: From Tents to Tees” and weave his personal story with his life and business lessons.
“Seek knowledge, spread peace” is the motto Hussein follows in all things personal and professional. He is a local business owner, graduate of Portland State University, School of Architecture and serves on the Oregon Commission on Asian Pacific Islander Affairs. His passion for art, design, and the community led him to turn his hobby of printing t-shirts for friends and family, into a thriving screen printing business.
The Printory, established in 2011, has grown into a full service garment design business, utilizing screen printing and embroidery. The vision of “printing with a purpose” has continually allowed Hussein the opportunity to collaborate with schools, non-profit organizations, and local businesses while developing his own artistic expression.
In 2016, Hussein launched the Refutees program, a fundraising project which donates quality clothing and goods to refugees and immigrants in Oregon. Today, Refutees are worn by amazing people who support the cause of unity for immigrants and refugees through designed tees that spark conversations and tell stories.
