Here are six of our all-time favourites from the Hamlin Shop to help step up your summer style!

Beach days

 Get ready for long summer days on the beach with the Abay beach towel. This gorgeous towel is made from luxuriously thick, hand-spun Ethiopian cotton and is available in a choice of three beautiful pastels - blush, sunflower and tangerine.
Our Petra Kaftan is the perfect beach or pool cover-up. Handmade of Ethiopian cotton, it features a fringed bottom and a stylish trim in Marine Blue or Black. The loose fit suits every shape and size!
Keep your valuables safe in the fairtrade Kitenge Market Basket from Kenya. Ethically made from woven plant fibres, each basket features a leather trim and handles. The colourful kitenge fabric lining includes an interior pocket (perfect for your phone and keys!). 

Lazy pool days

 Looking forward to long days by the pool in the sunshine with a good book? The Sisal Shoulder Bag in Sand or Natural is woven by women in Eastern Kenya using natural, sisal fibre. It’s perfect for taking all your essentials to the pool.
Your holiday reading is here! In Catherine’s Gift, John Little takes us inside the extraordinary world of Dr Catherine Hamlin and some of the women who have travelled to her hospitals in the hope of a cure for their fistula injuries.

Kids’ holidays

 Keep your kids sun-safe these holidays! This Hooded Baby Towel is soft and cosy and perfect for wrapping up your toddler after the beach or bath time. It is made from 100% Ethiopian cotton and available in blue or yellow stripe.  
Bundle up your bub in our exclusive Awassa Beach Poncho, featuring a hood and bright colour pattern for fun in the sun! Perfect for beach or pool days, this quick-drying poncho is lightweight and breathable.


Afternoon picnics


Elevate your picnic setting with these beautiful placemats, handwoven from 'Lutindzi' grass from the mountains of Swaziland. The grass is known for its strength and is harvested sustainably.

Bundle your placemats with a set of six matching coasters - and save!
