UMU was born from ‘Under My Umbrella’, a Zambian brand started in 2008 producing wooden outdoor furniture 'it's everything that goes under your umbrella'.
UMU Ltd now has a small team of 9 artisanal carpenters, tailors and upholsterers who produce beautiful high quality household furniture constructed from sustainably sourced Zambian woods, steel, cement and textiles and manufacture on a bespoke basis for decerning clients.
Our tight-knit design and artisan team enables us to operate as one finely tuned machine through every phase of an order. Our proud heritage of excellence and respect for craftsmanship enables us to deliver great products to our clients - and continue to innovate and streamline.
Bespoke (adj.) (bəˈspoʊk): Created to suit a particular customer’s requirements.
We believe in the power of bespoke design to elevate any space. Every piece we create is precision built from scratch for a specific space, a unique individual, and a distinct brand. Imagine the freedom to create furnishings for specific spaces; purpose built to achieve your one-of-a-kind vision.
