HOW IT ALL STARTED
In 2014 Ubuntu Wear was founded by Henriette Visscher and Elmer Emanuels. Besides lovers and best friends, they became business partners. In a short amount of time, Ubuntu Wear gathered a global audience and their products were selling worldwide.
In 2016 Henriette and Elmer made a big shift, in as well their personal as their business life. They closed their lifestyle shop in the city centre of Rotterdam and sold most of their belongings. They took a plane halfway across the world, for the adventure of a lifetime. With a backpack filled each, they decided to travel the world full-time.
Endlessly inspired by the cultures and creative artisans they met along the way, they expanded their fashion brand. Ubuntu Wear started to collaborate with local craftsmen. The brand is mixing traditional skills with urban statements and present them to a global audience.
