Swedish design - Zambian Craft
Yawama of Sweden's philosophy is to combine African craftsmanship with Swedish design. Through a partnership with the blogger Clara Lidstrom and the designer and stylist Anna Lidström, we have developed the concept Yawama Kids, a children's range that is unique in its kind. The collection includes products for children of all ages - that take into account environmental as well as producers.
Behind the production of soft toys are women in Zambia, which for each knitted animals get a much needed extra income. The women gather once a week to pick a new yarn for their work. These occasions have gradually become an important social meeting place and many stuffed animals Knit there - on a blanket in the shade of the hut.
Soft toys are knitted by 100% GOTS certified organic cotton yarn and stuffed with Oeko certified acrylic topping. Stuffed animals can be machine washed in lukewarm water, and then drip dried. Our handmade organic toys are tested according to international and EU standards and meets EN71-3 safety requirements for toys for children and are CE marked.
