The chickens are back in time for Easter!

Just a quick note to say that our chicken cushion covers have finally made it from Kampala to the UK and are available to order now!

Click to visit our shop now>>

They are now available in two colourways – full technicolor or a more subtle cream and brown.

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!
