Meet our First Designer Resident!

Emma, Rose and Babs.

Not too long ago, Awamaki hosted Babs and Rose from Britain for a few weeks, Babs is Awamaki’s first designer collaborator. They were working on a Peruvian inspired line of accessories during their stay with us and Awamaki’s volunteer photographer, Tricia Ward, joined them for a early morning fashion shoot. Modeling their wares is Awamaki’s Weaving Project Director, Emma. You can find out more about them at their website, Playsuit Parlour, or Playsuit Parlour’s Facebook.
