You can continue to support RAWA through Meena Fashion and BoHo HoBo

BoHo HoBo presents a new shop  named Meena,  in honour of  the founding member of RAWA, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan, which has been fighting for human rights, democracy and social justice in Afghanistan since 1971. All proceeds from the sales of both Meena and BoHo HoBo go to RAWA in order to help fund schools, orphanages, clinics and income generating projects for Afghan people.

The style of clothes at Meena is ‘Afghanistan Bohemian’. It is a hybrid of traditional Afghan styles and western styles of clothes.  Traditional afghan styles have a lot of variety due to the many ethnic groups represented in Afghanistan, as well as it’s historic place on the ancient silk road and the influences of the various cultures that have passed through this desert country. Tajik, Uzbek, Kyrgyz, Kuchi nomad, Indian, Turkish and Persian styles are all influencing factors in the style of traditional Afghan clothes and as well in this collection of Afghanistan Bohemian wear.
