Twin teenage entrepreneurs have launched what they claim is the first dedicated property magazine and website for Swindon.

Wigwam is the brainchild of 19-year-old Mia and Ella Sandhu, and is available for free online or in limited numbers in print.

The pair had support from their dad Nathan who used the years of design, print and marketing expertise he's gained since founding the Swindon-based branding consultants Jazzbones.

Mia and Ella launched Wigwam just as the property market went into lockdown but kept their spirits high by making plenty of property-related social media content and are now looking to the future as the sector gets back to work.

The magazine's articles are written by in-house copywriter Jeff King, who takes the position of editor at the publication.

Mia is currently studying BSc human geography at Cardiff University.

Ella is currently studying BSc economics at the University of Reading. She said: “We chose the name Wigwam because it is memorable and, as a dome-shaped house built by American First Nation tribes, has obvious relevance to the housing market.

"The Native Americans have a great sense of community, which is what we are trying to build across the property sector in Swindon.”

The publication has been well-received by property professionals, with early support coming from estate agents Alan Hawkins, Moovahome, Dewhurst & Co, and Richard James, interior designers Pepper & Co, and building contractors Austen Dawson among others.

The sisters are offering free promotional space on their site to charities and good causes.
