Caring for your Umva wrap:
Gently soak in lukewarm water
with a very gentle suitable wool soap.
Soak for 5 minutes, gently hand rinse,

Kind Words from Umva Customers
I love mine SO much!!! The fabric, the pattern, the colors, and mostly the provenance are all beautiful and inspiring. I unconditionally recommend these as gifts for that person who deserves something truly special. ~ Jennie
I purchased 3 wool shawls for gifts and am having a hard time parting with them. They are made of a fine, soft, springy wool with such a light hand. The leaf print creates a very subtle pattern. I was struck by the colors, such deep earth colors. So lovely. Their work is beautiful, and it is making a profound difference in the lives of these Rwandan women. ~ Helen
When I unfurled my Umva wrap, I gasped. The colors are even more beautiful and vibrant than the pictures portray. I love wearing it, and I’ve draped it in loops over a plain linen dress for a fancy dinner out and tossed it over my shoulders on a chilly evening as I run out to the grocery store. This gorgeous piece will be a central part of my ethical elegance wardrobe project for years to come! ~ Beverly
My Umva wrap is a thing of beauty. Soft, luxurious wool that I can melt into. Every time I look at it I marvel at the care and crafts-womanship that went into it’s creation. It is all the more special to me because I know that by my purchase a family is creating an income they would otherwise not have. Umva is more than products, it’s a story, about Rwanda and about a family of women and I feel it’s important to share. So important that I bought another as a gift. I hope you will too. ~ Corrine
My beautiful wrap arrived in the mail and I love it so much! The colors are so rich and it looks wonderful on me! I took it to my class to show all of my friends today and it was met with many, many compliments. Murakoze cyaneee, UMVA! ~ Manise
