Female Founded Products We Want

Welcome to our new feature here at Swaay The Gal Guide, your ultimate destination for everything female founded or designed. We’ve handpicked our favorite products from female entrepreneurs and over the coming months will introduce you to them in themed bi-weekly segments.

Our gal guide will recognise an effeminate tenacity and drive that has gone unnoticed and under appreciated for decades, and hopes to highlight the merits of the entrepreneurial story as well as the product itself!

We hope you enjoy!
