What a ride! Thank you to everyone who has supported Awa Homemade over the last year and a half by purchasing, giving feedback and sharing your love for our products.

We might be saying goodbye for now, but it won't be for long! Before we go, we have a lot of stock that we need to find homes for, so enjoy our closing down sale with discount of up to 40% off! Due to the scope of the sale, free shipping has been disabled. We will however continue to offer flat rate shipping of $5.00 urban and $7.00 rural.

Please note, Awa Homemade is a small team of literally 2 people (and 2 dogs), so we will only be dispatching orders on Tuesdays due to hectic schedules. If your order is urgent, let us know in your order notes, and we will do our best to get your order out to you as soon as possible.
