What is Awareness Ribbons, and why do we wear them?

Our Awareness ribbons are standardised into a short piece of coloured satin ribbon that is heat cut, and folded into a loop.  It is then pinned with a small brass pin,  on the front of your shirt, or lapel. We wear the awareness ribbon in an eye catching manor to create awareness or in support of a cause or issue we feel deeply about.

There are a myriad of different colours and colour combinations that is linked to specific causes, for different South African awareness days throughout the year
