Dagne and Xiomara, love to travel and were inspired by their many road trips and international travels to embark on their leather bag and accessories business venture. Whether it's long journeys or daily commutes, the two yearned for classic styles with a story. The dynamic duo currently reside in Oakland and Sacramento, CA. After a recent trip to Ethiopia, Dagne, born and raised in Ethiopia, brought home several leather goods home as gifts for friends and family, only to realize that he needed to go back to Addis Ababa for more! Both Xiomara and Dagne receive loads of requests from friends, co-workers and strangers for more handmade leather goods from Ethiopia. Thus, the birth of UnoEth began. On embarking on this new adventure, the duo only wanted to deliver quality and timeless pieces that could be worn for years on end, surpassing trendy styles and fads. All Unoeth goods are handmade, 100% Ethiopian leather. Xiomara and Dagne partner with artisans and help them become small business owners in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and help create business and job opportunity in their homeland. The father-daughter team hopes to create more business opportunities for artisans in Ethiopia in the leather sector. They also plan to expand into the textile business and support organic cotton and linen weavers in a apparel and home textiles.
