The UBANG universe incorporate play and laughter into organic kids wear.
UBANG was established in 2006. From conception, UBANG has consistently demanded to produce high quality garments, using organically certified materials, attention to details and well sewn applications. Always standing by the belief to create designs that promote the imaginations of children and allowing them the possibilities for further play.
“The playful concept has proven to be exceedingly sustainable. When I founded UBANG, children’s wear with built in sensory play details was very unusual, but thankfully it is much more accepted and an attractive part of kids fashion today,” says Ulla Bang Jørgensen, designer and owner of UBANG.
Who is behind UBANG?
UBANG was founded in 2006 and is owned and designed by me Ulla Bang Jørgensen. I live and work in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Born in Copenhagen (1969) and from an artistic family, my father being a sculptor and my mother a teacher and jewellery designer. I trained 3 years as set designer at Wimbledon School of Art in London, and graduated with a BA in set design in 1996. With a background in theatre design and a lot of experience from puppet theatre, I find it natural to design products that tell a story and stimulate the imagintion.
Besides running UBANG I also work with sparring and coaching for design and art businesses. I have a passion about working and inspiring people, and finding the unique way to make the person grow. The sparring is a natural development of many years experience as designer and business owner. Read more about my work with sparring here: ubj-sparring.dk
