Well, we do. Especially if they are made from our favorite, colourful African/Holladais wax fabrics.
Our super stylish organic, african cotton tees with patch pockets will be in our shop by Monday – there a great way to keep it keep it simple but add a splash pf colour that might tempt the sun to shine here in the UK!
Organic tees with extra jazz!
We even have some for grown ups! (this is Steve being a grown up)
They have been handmade for you by Sarah Kabenge and whether you’re buying for yourself or a friend, you know you are making a real difference when you buy from awamu because you are also giving a wonderful gift of education to vulnerable children and helping mum’s like Sarah in the slums of Kampala.
We use 100% of our income from all our items to support orphaned children in two of the poorest areas of Kampala and train mothers like Sarah in the skills they need to support their family.
Sarah explains for herself how learning tailoring skills has changed her life in this short film we made with her. It’s only a few minutes long – we hope you like it.
Thank you again to everyone that has waited so patiently since we sold out after being featured in the Telegraph gift guide.
We’re be adding more and more into the shop over the coming weeks. Happy Easter!

Well, not in years – you measure cinemas clubs by screenings of course.
The wonderful Kerry and Joey at Magic Lantern Film Club would love you to join them on this momentous occasion on the ‘sprightly’ dark evening of Friday the 2nd of November.
To celebrate their milestone every ticket holder to this event will get vouchers for this special secret squirrel venue. Please note this film is a bit scary and an 18 but no need to fear, you will always be safe with the Magic Lantern crew.
As ever the meeting point for this Magic Lantern Film Club event will be announced nearer the time.
Not only will you get a fabulous evening of entertainment but 100% of the money raised from the Magic Lantern will come to the amazing awamu to help orphaned children in we work with in Kampala.
So far Magic Lantern events have raised £3675 – thats just short of enough to support 4 children through 7 years of primary education – AMAZING!
They only have 20 spaces at this intimate screening and so move fast and get your tickets >>here
