Customer Reviews

Melissa, US

Christmas gift!

Bought a Christmas gift and my friend is going to LOVE them. Thank you for the quick, great service and personal touch.

Cécile B, US

Love, love, love

Beautiful earrings and necklace delivered in one day at my hotel, secured payment and most of all Pauline, one of the co-founder is adorable and really into helping her handicraft community get visibility and living through Mawu! A must order!

Mike M, US

Beautifully crafted dog collar

This is easily the best looking dog collar I've ever seen. It is very well made and size XXL was just right for my stocky Lab. Delivery was quick.

Karen D. US

Beautiful & beyond my expectation

These earrings were the same in person as they appear online. They are not heavy and don't use any type of backing to keep them in. I've only worn them once but for about 6 hours, and there was never concern about them falling out of my ears. I wore them with an orange outfit but love that they can be worn with many colors and through every season. I very highly recommend them.

Cindy Stith, US

Outstanding quality

The order arrived earlier than expected and was an easy transaction. The team reached out to ensure the name was correct, and the item arrived beautifully wrapped with a handwritten note. I will order from them again!

OCÉANE, France

I love this online store

Such a good opportunity for me to know African local brands and for themselves to be known. The products are of good quality and the owners of Mawu are extremely nice. I'll definitely order more in the future! Thank you!

I got what I ordered even though I had to change the material.

Brenda, Kenya

Key holder review

The key holder was made of pure leather which I loved. The colour was rich. The only thing I would change would be the font size, or maybe make it bold a little bit.
Delivery was fast and efficient and it came in a beautiful packaging
