About us

How does a self-taught fashion Designer selling clothes out of his small college room go on to create a global brand? Uhuru's founder Izu Madubueze started making clothes for himself because he wanted something that could both represent and keep him connected to his roots. Little did he know that he was creating a medium for others around the world to do the same thing as well. Uhuru is the chance to try something new, different and uniquely crafted while hitting home. Izu broke into the world of fashion by designing products so unique that they are impossible not to talk about. Collections use prints that include and portray all aspects of culture from all parts of Africa. They are a chance to express your origins and cultural style, values, and heritage on your everyday apparel, whether casual or formal, Izu's Designs are bound to catch the eye and touch the heart.
"Our products are handmade by the best craftsmen around the globe, and quality is our top priority. At Uhuru, we believe in honest luxury. Your unique bespoke apparel is specially made in the United States, or the origin country of the requested print, using the finest materials. People are very important to us. From the fabric maker to you, the customer, we make sure everyone gets the best experience. Our personal touch ensures full tractability on our materials and the highest standards of design for your unique piece. After production, every item is carefully inspected by qualified industry experts before it is sent out to you. Uhuru is exclusive - one of a kind. Our style is street, poetic, and tailored. We want the entire continent to look fresh, brave, original and self-confident. We promote and sell not just apparel, but an attitude and a way of life. We cant outsource our voice, it is our heart, it is our soul, it is our story". - Izu Madubueze
