SEW (Supporting + Empowering Women) produces fair trade conference accessories, including bags and document wallets.

We are a social enterprise, working in partnership with HIV+ women. We seek to erode discrimination in the workforce. To that end, we demonstrate the resilience and creativity of those living with the virus in Tanzania.

We cater for events of all sizes, offering a range of useful products to hold laptops, reading material and gifts.

Our products are hand-stitched from recycled plastic; we are committed to reducing waste from our collective habitat.

Our partners are paid a fair price for their labour and all profits are reinvested into the project.

Customers have included the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Food Program and Oxfam. Click here to see a full list of clients.
