It has been a while since we spoke about our A to Z initiative. This does not mean we have not been working on it! If you have not heard about it before The A to Z is an Urbanknit initiative which will donate proceeds from sales of bags, totes, cushions, clutches made from upcycled, repurposed, recycled fabrics to assist charities and local schools in Nigeria (which is where the fabric is currently from). Our own way of making a (creative) contribution. Every product that is part of the initiative will have an orange label to identify it as being that extra special. The full range available can be found with the A to Z Initiative tag.
We have a set of newly listed Pink Cushions Aso-Oke cushions in our Etsy store which are all part of the initiative. So if you are looking for large, bold, pink cushions then please consider these. Its a win win situation! You can order it with or without the cushion pad.
1. Pink Zebra Cushion– £15
2. Pink and Silver Cushion– £15
3. Pink and Yellow Cushion– £25
4. Pink and Black Cushion– £15
As the pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness, sales from these pink cushions will go to the Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria.

As usual, we’d love to hear what you think.

Its a brand new month, here’s to a great start.
Our item of the week is this cool little gadget sleeve which gives you a funky way to store and transport you Netbook, iPad or any other gadget of a similar size. The Pink Zebra laptop sleeve has several layers of padding so your gadget is protected from bumps and scratches. It also closes with a funky chunky zipper keeping everything in place.
This Africa-inspired piece is made in a fabric from Nigeria known as ‘Aso-oke’ which is a a fabric that is handwoven on a loom and is usually worn during special occasions and festivals. The sleeve is also lined internally with bright pink African print fabric, with a blue butterfly motif.
