In 1971, the Jerash Women's Association was founded. It began as a nursery and kindergarten project for children; however, after a year of establishment, the association decided to expand to empower women. It started the sewing and embroidery project, in which local community women were trained by the Noor Al Hussein Foundation.

It does, however, continue to face challenges. varying from the sourcing of the raw materials in Jerash compared to those in the capital Amman, to the delivery and marketing of products.
