“Fawaka” means “How are you?” in the Surinamese language. Suriname is a small country in South America near to Guyana, French Guyana and Brazil and was a colony of The Netherlands from 1667 - 1954. Suriname gained their full independency on November 25 1975. Until the day of today the mother tongue in Suriname is Dutch. Along with the independency a lot of Surinamese people choose to immigrate to The Netherlands. Nowadays a lot of Surinam words are used in daily conversations in The Netherlands. These words are even to be found in the new Dutch dictionary.
"Fawaka Amsterdam" is created by Veronica Jibodh, the owner and designer of POUCHI. Veronica is born in Suriname, immigrated to Amsterdam in 2003.
"Fawaka" is a daily used word in the Netherlands and of course in Suriname.

"I’m extremely happy with my Pouchi bags. I have three already. The bags are solid and of good quality as you would expect from products with such a price tag. Even after years of regular use I can’t find wear or tear on my Pouchi bags. One of the Pouchi bags I have is the Victoria Silver which has silver details and is made of black leather. The leather has a subtle hexagon pattern which give the pouch an extra touch. There is more than enough space in the bag for my Ipad mini, wallet, phone and extras. It has three large pockets of which two with zipper and three small pockets (phone format) of which one with zipper. If you’re a mom like I am you know that you can never have too much room and pockets in your bag. I’ll wear my Victoria Silver to all kind of occasions whether it’s a formal event of my employer or during the day while shopping. It’s very light and easy to carry with me. I can recommend this bag to everyone and in particular women who don’t have the time to switch bags every time they go out."

I just need to put necessary belonging in there and I shouldn’t take more or less than needed. Pouchi meet my requirement: right size, nice design that makes me feel beautiful, and multifunction: cross sling, hip bag and pouch that I can use for work, party or while going out with my kids. Thank you for such a great design and I am looking forward to your new collection Loves, Eva."
