Women Unleashed was founded by Namibian interior designer, Melanie van der Merwe. In the short time since its inception, business has grown with leaps and bounds. With her right-hand (wo)man, Caro James, the company has become well-known for its dedicated, innovative and bold approach to interior design.
Team WU brings talent, boundless energy and passion to every project we undertake. We share one vision - that everything we do and make should enhance the life of every person involved.
We are fortunate to have an extended network of artists, artisans, designers and manufacturers around Namibia with whom we collaborate to realize our designs.
On any given project, up to 30 Namibians are employed and their involvement very often reaches even further than their own lives. We strive to empower every person we work with, to open them up to new ideas and to inspire them to keep growing.
Our great dane and chief mascot, Anna, came to us a gift in 2008 and is named after the main character of an extraordinary biography.
Described by the American Kennel Association as combining a regal appearance, dignity, strength and elegance, she inspires us
with her loving presence, beauty and gentleness.
Anna is more than a mascot, more than a muse.
She embodies our mission and represents our vision.
