Our History and Our mission
Uwakstar Designs opened in 2018 and is owned and operated in Austin, TX. The company was born out of a desire to create colorful and inspiring fashion that was not available locally. We source our fabrics from all over the world, but our design inspiration comes from looking at the vibrant colors of African print fabrics (Ankara wax print).
Our goods are designed for the sophisticated woman that is seeking dynamic, handmade pieces that cannot be found anywhere else. We specialize in crafting leather and fabric handbags and accessories, while also offering the direct purchase of our multicolored fabrics for those wishing to create their own pieces.
Many people tell their stories through their words and actions. We want to help you tell your story at first glance through our fashion forward pieces. New items are regularly added to our inventory, so for the most up to date information make sure to follow us on social media!
Meet the owner
"When I came to Austin, I fell in love with fashion but couldn't find the type of eye-catching pieces that I really adore. That's when I realized that I could use African fabrics and other materials to make colorful, stunning accessories.
When people kept coming up to me to ask where I was getting these beautiful items, I knew that I had to share my creations with the world. My ultimate goal is to incorporate African fabrics into mainstream fashion and make Uwakstar Designs a global brand."
