According to BBC, the exhibition items were mainly donated by people in Greece to refugees and asylum seekers as the refugee crisis began to unfold in 2015/2016. First shown in Athens, it was put together by Amnesty International and Oxfam.
As the exhibition travels the world, it picks up items along the way. Scotland's contribution if welcome letters written by locals.
Eiman, who lives in Scotland and came from Sudan, said, "If you have nothing and you arrive in a new place, the simplest act of kindness can make a really big difference, whether that's in Athens or here in Glasgow. So with these items, it's the story that they tell, even if they seem like a strange thing to put in a display case."
