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.
