About

Our Story...

Ewà Madam was founded January 2010. The inspiration behind the line is three tiered: 1. Create affordable African inspired and contemporary accessories for all to reflect their beauty. 2. Make Ankara /African textiles more mainstream. 3. Expose African lingo, traditions, ideologies, and spiritual systems via characters and proverbial descriptions that all people can relate to in some form or fashion.

Ewà Madam specializes in creating mostly one-of-a-kind contemporary and African inspired accessories made from natural and semi-precious stones, beads from the palm nut family; paper and glass, wood, African phono disc, vintage sequins, feathers, metals, upscale leather and Ankara (African) fabrics that are wholistic, soulful, unique and universal in design.

The first pair of earrings I created was the first pair I sold, lol. A Senegalese friend of mine gave me an African necklace as a gift, which I was not too crazy about . As a result, I took it apart and created a pair of earrings. That August of 2009, I went to our annual African Festival of the Arts here in Chicago and was stopped by a vendor who complimented my earrings and wanted to purchase on the spot. I asked her how much she was willing to purchase them for and she quoted a complimentary price. I told her that I wanted to sanitize them first and bring them to her tomorrow. The next day, I did just that and the rest is history:) I started making more earrings for myself, and sold some to my close friends. Eventually, I marketed our line to a well known African clothing store, Kayra Imports, and some of my pieces sold there. However, I felt it was time to have something more intimate and launched the online virtual store January of 2012.

Ewà Madam is at its beginning stages, yet we plan to launch men and children's accessories in the near future. Additionally, we will expand and diversify our product line by offering necklaces, waist beads and natural hair accessories. The possibilities are endless...

You are a Beautiful canvas and I await for you to tap into my artistry!

==> Please note that during sales, processing times may increase as order influx increases at those times. However, we strive to send orders out as quickly as possible and will notify you of any major delays. Order inquiries are welcome.

We offer flat rate shipping. All additional items ship for free :)

US Domestic Customers

– We send all of our packages through United States Postal Service (USPS) with tracking numbers that you will receive upon shipment notification.

International Customers

– All international orders will be shipped via US Postal Service. Typical delivery time can be between 1-2 weeks. But further delays do happen for reasons beyond our control.
– Once an order has been shipped from our facility, we are no longer responsible, as mail delays are beyond our control.
– Customs fees vary by country. The customer is solely responsible for any customs duties or taxes associated with their purchase.
For ALL CUSTOMERS – Please be aware that once packages are in the hands of the USPS, we are no longer responsible for those packages. Lost, stolen, or damaged packages will not be our responsibility. If you have a concern over this occurring, USPS offers insurance for purchase. We will not be responsible for wrong addresses provided to our system. We will be happy to reship the order once the prior order is received and when the buyer pays for reshipping.
USPS offers a delivery confirmation system WHICH IS NOT THE SAME as a standard tracking system. There are times when the package status will not be updated by USPS until actual delivery. Inquiries concerning location of a package after a delivery confirmation has been received should be directed to USPS.

Most importantly, please be mindful that ~Ewà Madam~ is not responsible for any loss, theft or damage that occurs during shipping. When placing your order online, please make sure that your shipping address is complete and correct.

Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders

Custom orders are always welcomed and encouraged for Ankara style pieces whereas you send in your own fabric to be made into your very own ~Ewà Madam~ designs. Additionally, many of the designs shown in our boutique can be changed to suit your preferences.

Please feel free to contact us with questions on custom ordering via email customorder [!at] ewamadam.com . We will continue to communicate with you until the design is finalized. You will receive a cost estimate with detailed description of material used and a delivery time frame.

Keep in mind, certain designs may require back order of additional materials to complete your design, yet most made to order pieces can be completed within a two to four week time frame. Express orders can be discussed at additional cost.

The price would be something we could both be comfortable with commensurate with the worth of the materials needed and labor involved. Specific shipping and insurance, if any, would be included in the pricing.

Afterwards, a reserved listing of your custom order will post and be found under the custom orders icon under “shop sections” via Etsy. Payment is due within three days, or your order will be canceled. I will begin crafting your design once your payment clears. Custom orders are non-refundable, so please keep that in mind while you're shopping.
