Awanya's Story

AWANYA :
Strength of the Farmer

Asia Sikkila, a self-taught designer and artist, has always had a passion for traditional crafts and natural textiles.

Her travels took her to West Africa over 20 years ago where she had the honor to collaborate with the artists and makers of the textiles for her AWANYA brand.

Bogolan, or "mudcloth,” is the traditional fabric of Mali.  Mudcloth is a hand-woven local cotton cloth made with hand-painted designs from natural plant-based and mud dyes.

Each of AWANYA’s statement pieces are unique due to the hand dying process of the fabrics, and create dynamic apparel and home decor with both traditional and modern elements. Many of the designs are simple with minimal cuts to the textiles, intended to showcase the fabric itself.

By wearing an AWANYA garment or bringing a decorative piece into your home, we hope to inspire a sense of connection to the earth that will enrich your life.
