Founded in 2019 by Ogechi Harry, and headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, ụlọ offers unique, African-influenced, ethically-made bedding and other homewares.
ụlọ means home
In Ogechi’s native language, Igbo, “ụlọ” means one’s home or house, but it also means proverbially, the place where one comes from.
"Home is the backdrop to our memories and the place where stories live."
The search for more
When Ogechi was expecting her first child, she wanted to decorate the nursery with African-inspired bedding and home décor but all she could find was the typical cliché safari theme with the usual suspects - the lion, monkey, and elephant. “I wanted something that offered a more modern and diverse portrayal of Africa that reflected African experiences influenced by a global perspective. We and the continent are more complex than a safari.”
Recognizing this void in the market, Ogechi decided to change the narrative. She created ụlọ to convey the diversity of African perspectives through inspiring, premium homewares for those who, like her, appreciate a home style that reflects a global perspective.
Making a difference
At ụlọ, we are passionate about doing good. We strive to provide the highest quality products that are toxin-free, benefit communities, respect and preserve traditional artisanal processes, and are good for the environment.

Adia Jamille is one of our unique black-owned companies. Its owner carries the same name. Jamille has been creating from a very young age. It’s the one thing that has always been natural for her. Throughout her lifetime, she has explored various art forms. She tried drawing, painting, etc. The one that speaks most to her soul is fiber arts. Growing up, her mother was an avid quilter, and she also sewed a lot of Jamille’s clothing. These processes were always interesting to Jamille. Still, it wasn’t until college that she found her calling in the fiber arts. Jamille spent hours honing her craft and eventually very good at embroidery, weaving, and screen printing. Later she learned that her enslaved ancestors worked on indigo plantations. The African American business owner now realized why she had such an affinity for the fiber arts. Adia Jamille produces quality home goods, accessories, and gifts in pursuit of her passion.
