F.K.A because Brand


HAWWAA was created with the belief that fashion is supposed to be fun and for everyone. The brand welcomes any and everyone to enjoy the variety of clothing and accessories created for all!


HAWWAA aims to provide affordable, original, and colorful handmade fashion.

Everything created for HAWWAA is handmade by the founder and designer, Hawwaa Ibrahim, and produces as little waste as possible, often using any leftover fabric and materials to create other products.

Due to limited labor, Hawwaa being the only one making products, creation of products is often slow and carefully researched before any products are ready to be created, sold, and shipped. Thus saving energy, labor, and supplies. No additional samples are created and one-of-a-kind pieces allow for all products to be of use before more are created.

HAWWAA is actively working on creating product using more sustainable materials.
