Winter Wonders!

Whether your burrowing down home or braving a brusque walk, the Hamlin Shop’s winter fashion range will keep you comfortable, warm and cosy. We asked the Hamlin Team to share their favourite Hamlin Shop products for when the mercury plummets.


Brave and Beautiful Wrap

The Brave and Beautiful Wraps are a testament to the strength and determination of the incredible fistula patients at Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia. Each wrap is hand-crafted by long-term patients at Desta Mender, Hamlin’s rehabilitation and reintegration centre, where patients learn skills that help them gain independence and return to their communities empowered.

Use it as a throw to snuggle for nights in front of the fireplace or as a wrap to rug up in on chilly days. Purchase your Brave and Beautiful Wrap here.

Hamlin Homemade Blanket

A symbol of compassion, commitment and quality care for obstetric fistula patients, the Hamlin blanket is a beloved icon. Knitted by dedicated Hamlin supporters, each blanket represents hours of work. A colourful throw to liven up your home or the perfect blanket to snuggle up with on a cold winter’s night.


Handwoven Timket Scarf

Featuring a stylish and unusual stripe motif, the Handwoven Timket Scarf will add a finishing flair to any outfits. The Timket Scarf was woven on a traditional loom, using the same style that has been used and passed down for centuries. The beautiful design is made using the ‘tibeb’ technique traditional to Ethiopia. Made in Ethiopia from 100% Ethiopian cotton sourced from local smallholder farms, this scarf is lightweight and large.

The Handwoven Timket Scarf is available from here.


Brave and Beautiful Scarf

Each wonderful Brave and Beautiful Scarf is hand-crafted by a patient at Desta Mender. Made from 100% raw Ethiopian cotton, this scarf will keep you warm on cool days. You can feel the hand-crafted quality of these scarves – the raw Ethiopian cotton is full of character and soft to the touch. Each scarf bears the name of the patient who created it.
