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!

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!

Get cosy on the sofa with awamu

Don’t know about you, but as the days grow darker in the UK, we grow fonder and fonder of our sofa. So we’ve made ours a colourful, cosy nest for hibernating in with some of our beautiful new cushions handmade for you by Sarah Kabenge.

They are 100% cotton, hard wearing and whether it is education grants or skills training that helps guardians earn an income, every penny we raise through sales and donations goes towards projects that are making life better for kids like Tom and Jaliya.

Our inspiration – meet the faces behind the products

We are passionate about creating a connection between you and the women that make our beautiful products for you.

It’s time you got to meet some of the team who put time and loving care into turning our patterns and fabric into beautifully tailored items you can buy in our shop.

We can vouch for the quality of their work and the warmth of their hearts as they are creating but we’ll let Sarah Kabenge and Salima Najjingo explain for themselves how learning tailoring skills has changed their lives.

Every penny we raise through sales and donations is ploughed back into the education grants for vulnerable children and skills training for their guardians so they can support themselves and their families.

We really hope you will find something you love in our shop, but if shopping is not for you and like what we do please consider a donation.
