The Greek government has begun closing some of the refugee camps across the country as it continues its policy of integration.

Oinofyta camp, north of Athens, was closed in early November.

Many of its 700 residents have been moved to apartments in Athens, and this group of refugees has salvaged materials from the camp and is using them to make bags and backpacks. They have set up their project with the help of a local NGO and are using a warehouse in the area for their production.

Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull reports from Oinofyta.
