As parents, we are passionate about acceptance and self love. We believe that if we can encourage our children to love themselves and embrace the things that makes them unique, they will have the confidence to take on the world.
We created a unisex kids clothing range that is made to stand out and spread a positive message. Inspired by Nnenna Emily’s Nigerian heritage and the African art of storytelling textiles, the clothing carries symbols to represent affirmations and positive messages of self-belief and love.
From every thread to every fastener, all components of our clothing are Oeko-Tek tested for harmful substances to ensure that we’re using only the safest materials when manufacturing our clothing.
All of our inside garment care and brand labels are made from natural fibres for comfortability. The branded tags attached to our cotton garments are produced with FSC approved paper and all of our garments are carefully packaged in FSC approved paper packaging, no plastic, ever!
We value honest, fair wages and ethical working conditions to enhance the lives of our workers and community. Our factory is Sedex approved meaning important steps are taken to ensure a healthy, responsible, and safe environment with an increased focus on improving human and worker rights.
‘Go softly in the world; if it is harmed, it cannot return’
AKWA BABY IS COMMITTED TO DONATING 10% OF OUR PROFITS ACROSS THE YEAR TO GREAT CAUSES WE CARE ABOUT.
We are so blown away by the brilliance of Grow 2 Know and really excited to align ourselves with this organisation in 2022.
Grow2Know was birthed in the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire, North Kensington, in June 2017, as community members used gardening as a means of therapy. Residents came together to green up spaces in the area that would uplift & unify through nature. These gardens would carry a legacy of hope in a time of such adversity.
‘Grow2Know aims to heal, inspire, empower & educate using horticulture – planting seeds in the minds of young people & giving them the necessary tools to make a positive impact in their communities. We aim to change the narrative & break the mould on the stereotypes of what it is like to be a gardener & what a gardener may look like, & in turn, create a more inclusive industry. We feel that gardening is a pretty cool thing to do & it is our mission to exhibit just how cool it is.”
