RoUm is a social enterprise gathering members of the Roma community sharing the mission to preserve or convert waste into newly formed objects for use in home. In collaboration with professional designers and artists, they have been working on objects by introducing Romani tradition and traditional crafts into the process, and by using the online space, they talk about their creation and organize sales to maintain the idea and further development of the project.
