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 has been curated with comfort and versatility in mind. As a mother of 14-month old twins, I appreciate how quickly kids grow so each piece is designed to last. Roll up the cuffs, layer with a jumper, team up with a T-shirt - come winter or summer, embrace the diversity and allow the designs to grow with your little one all year round.

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

My hope is that ULO Kids encourages young personalities to flourish and feel empowered to navigate through the adventures of life.

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!
