Sawa Sawa Collection is a mission-based brand in Austin Texas. It is a conscious, sustainable, slow, ethically made collection intricately crafted by artisan women in Kenya using an ancient technique passed down through generations. Sawa Sawa means 'It will be okay'. We help them with resources and designs to create, we then buy the products at a fair price to give them an income. Revenue from the sales funds empowerment programs for the women and menstrual kits for their daughters to help them stay in school.
The brand is black-woman owned and run. It was founded by Anne Drane and Catherine Mung'ara. Anne handles the American e-commerce and fundraising side and Catherine works directly with the women in Kenya and coordinates the non-profit programs.
Our work makes a world of difference for the women and their families. It gives them a platform to share their talent and culture with the world. We are grateful to every person for any action that helps propel our mission forward.
We are excited to feature these amazing women making this company grow and flourish! Be sure to give them a follow and we know you'll love the items we are offering and even more of their creations they offer on their site.
