UnoEth, meaning ‘one Ethiopia’, is a father-daughter brand that reaches back to their roots and partners with artisans in Addis Ababa to craft handmade, leather handbags, totes, backpacks, duffles and accessories. After a trip to Ethiopia to visit family, Dagne brought several leather goods home as gifts for family, only to realize that he needed to go back to Addis Ababa for more! Xiomara then designed several styles, Dagne helped their current artisan partner obtain his export license and thus, the birth of UnoEth began.
Xiomara and Dagne empower their artisan partners by helping them launch their own businesses and hire other artisans to handcraft our classic and casually styled, leather pieces. Recently, two of UnoEth’s Hanna Totes were featured on HBO’s Insecure season 4, worn by Issa Rae, and the Enku Backpack was voted by Marie Claire Magazine as ‘Most Long-Lasting Backpack’. Established in February 2015, it is their mission to duplicate their business model around the world, one artisan at a time.
