About the products

Fee Uhssi Ethical Luxury’s products are produced ethically and in limited editions using high quality ethical and bespoke textiles and fabrics.

The fabrics used are the center of the creative and design process and are at the heart of the story and the ethical vision and identity of the brand.

Mud cloth or traditionally called Bogolan is a traditional textile technique from Mali using natural dyes made from plants and mud to hand paint on the cotton cloth. The Bogolan process is not only completely natural and ecofriendly, it is a traditional Art part of the African art patrimony which is unfortunately become very rare.

The Art of Bogolan is one of those traditional textiles techniques which deserve to be preserved and promoted, it is one brilliant alternative solution to offensive polluting textiles production.

Fée Uhssi also sources and uses other traditional and modern African textiles locally made which helps supporting local small businesses and artists.

Fée Uhssi Ethical Luxury’s Art of Fashion Wrapping range offers a line of wraps and the Wrap Me Up clothing collection.

Fée Uhssi has nurtured and developed a passion and expertise for wraps and art of wrapping inspired by her west African origins.

The idea of Art of Fashion wrapping concept came naturally to Fée Uhssi as she started to collect high quality, precious handmade and vintage fabrics and was unable yet to decide what to make out of them, and not wanting to cut them up.

Fée Uhssi studied and researched on different forms of art of wrapping and draping from different countries, cultures, civilisations. She spent hours playing, sculpting with fabrics and practicing draping and wrapping. She created different techniques of wrapping, draping and knotting to create an impressive range of different outfits including tops, skirts, dresses, trousers, head wraps, belts, bags. She incorporated the Art of Wrapping from Africa with the Art of Wrapping from Japan and was able to produce versatile and ephemeral garments that have endless possibilities, which are unique in every way.

She then came out with idea of the Wrap Me Up collection, a clothing capsule collection offering 9 multifunction pieces that can be worn in many different ways offering many different style possibilities. Revisited every season with new prints, colors and textures and available made to order and bespoke.

The wraps line and the Wrap Me Up collection offer versatile accessories and garments which allow many different styles options and therefore aiming to last in a wardrobe to promote slow fashion.
