where they met.
this is our story
With my father António´s continuous support, my mother and I decided to make our lifelong dream a reality and to showcase the pride we feel in our African roots, its traditions and history. The result is Uila, a womenswear brand offering a contemporary take on Africa´s millenary traditions.
Uila is the best of us and we hope it will inspire women all over the world to follow their dreams.
Like you, we believe in change for the better.
Each garment we produce has a meaning and strong reason for being. We believe less is better so we design and manufacture limited edition collections.
We trust that by ensuring the high quality of our clothes, our customers will be able to use and re-use their most loved items and always be inspired by them.
We are focused on using more sustainable materials and on taking stand against waste.
We respect all workers who contribute to our garments and our relationship is based on mutual respect.
Uila is proudly made in Portugal, which is proof of our commitment to high standards and the well being of all involved in our mission.
We promise to always do the best we know and overcome ourselves everyday.
We are especially concerned with animal welfare. Uila is a vegetarian brand that doesn´t use materials of animal origin, like leather or fur.
By the way, did you know that our logo is inspired on the speckles of the guinea fowl? It represents not only our pride on our roots but also our respect for all animals.
