the designer

Schwari is the Swahili word for "calm". The line was founded by designer, Beate Allard, who operates a workshop in Arusha, Tanzania where her imagination and creativity are transformed into what can simply be described as "living art". 


Since 2008, Schwari has been a popular source of unique clothing, accessories and home goods for residents and visitors of Tanzania -- but is now becoming a fast-growing brand and has taken the international stage.


The Schwari signature consists of intricate local beading, along with hand-died textiles, leather, and African fabrics. From couture clothing for women, men, children and babies, to cushions, wall hangings, purses and shoes, you can enjoy Schwari from head to toe, and ceiling to floor.
