Our Story

 
 

Welcome to ULO

ULO is a celebration of African prints and vibrant patterns designed to bring colour and vibrancy into your family and home.

‘ULO’ means ‘Home’ in the native language of the Igbo people in Nigeria, West Africa. Inspired by my proud Nigerian heritage, we design and produce homewares and kids apparel inspired by the African prints that I have grown up with since living in Nigeria as a child.

Be Bold, Kids. In ULO.

We are incredibly excited to announce the launch of our first kidswear collection - ULO Kids. A unique line of playful prints and bold colours designed with limited edition prints from Ghana, Tanzania and Nigeria.

This collection is all about colour, comfort and versatility. When my twins were born in 2018, all I wanted to do was wrap them up in bright colours and dress them in lots of prints (the same prints that I grew up wearing as a child living in Nigeria). Two months later, and with an encouraging nudge from my husband, I set to work to design our first collection.

ULO Kids encourages young personalities to flourish and feel empowered as they navigate their way through the adventures of life. Clean lines and oversized shapes means that the prints do the talking, and each piece can be shared by siblings and loved for years to come.

Our collection has no correlation with seasonal trends - we want kids to wear our prints all year round!

Brighten up your home with ULO Wares

Nigerians love to entertain and welcome people into our homes, and ULO Wares embodies this spirit of conviviality. I created the brand to encourage people to live life in colour. With each collection, we are showcasing Western aesthetics with the chromatic colours of West Africa - a true representation of my own identity and cultures.

From our family to yours

Our carefully hand-sourced fabrics and limited edition prints are directly from artisans and wholesale vendors in Africa. Each collection is designed and produced by our team in Melbourne.

At ULO we choose originality over uniformity. We encourage you to mix designs and embrace the striking chaos of clashed prints.

Our collections are named after family and friends, adding unique character to every design and textile choice. We hope you enjoy getting to know them!
