Founder’s Story

Juliet Namujju


I grew up in poverty as an orphan with my single grandmother in a remote and rural Village in Uganda due to the victimization of disability caused to my family. My Grandmother was a tailor and inspired me as a child to use cut-offs and plastic waste, I Would gather from the streets, to produce my own dolls because she could not Afford buying me toys. What others threw away, I started to use as available resources. To create something. This changed my mind-set towards waste and I started to see the value in protecting the environment. At the age of 20 I and my team we founded Kimuli Collections as a sustainable fashion brand to fight for the conservation of the environment and inclusion of persons with disabilities. We use plastic waste materials to produce fashion and Accessories, which are hand made by our tailors with disabilities, whom we train and Employ to creatively upcycle plastic waste into fashion for beautiful products with a purpose for awareness about the under-looked global plastic waste crisis. Waste is only waste if you waste it.
