Sustainable events this season!

I am so excited about Yawama of Sweden being selected to take part in these upcoming events  for the festive season. These events will take place in locations that breath history, art, culture and design. These are all markets focusing on sustainable design and promoting upcoming design and brands. So here are some possibilities for you to do some purpose Christmas shopping.

I was raised on a farm in Zambia. My Dad comes from Kalix in Sweden and my mother from what used to be a small village outside of Lusaka. I first moved to Sweden to study business. My experience and lessons learned today are from international business and development work primarily in Southern Africa but also from my passion for Africa, its people and vast craftsmanship.
