TRADE NOT AID

Mbabazi(House of Style) is a Fair Trade business committed to advocating bespoke African designs through modern fashion and quality products like jewelry, apparel, purses, decor, accessories and more. We are committed to training and employing women and girls providing them with opportunities to make a fair living.  

Mbabazi(House of Style) was founded in 2007 by Grace Byeitima, the name is in honor of her single mother (Mbabazi Loy Rujumba) to appreciate her for the skills she taught her at an early age and teaching her the value of hard work. Loy now heads the production department sharing her 30+ years of experience with our tailors and trainees.
Without her, Mbabazi would be non existent.

Mbabazi is not just about clothing, the accessories and non-clothing related items reflect ideas that inspire Grace and adds to the ideas of a House of Style.

Mbabazi has thrived in Uganda despite issues that exist in competitive business markets of developing nations.Many well-meaning non-profit organizations who compete in the same market as traditional businesses such as Mbabazi are supported by subsides and grants that create an uneven playing field.

We at Mbabazi believe that the saying “TRADE NOT AID" describes the best way forward for economies in countries such as Uganda.

Thank You for browsing and we hope you love our products as much as we love sharing our culture and creating them for you.
