For 12 years the UBANG universe has incorporated play and laughter into children’s wear collections.
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.
Change of cause
All of our retailers, including our strongest market, Germany, have now received the UBANG Winter Autumn 2018 collection. Our customers have embraced this collection extremely well, so we are stopping at the top of our game as AW18 will be the last UBANG collection from the “old” UBANG.
After this, we look forward to being done with the old routines: development, production and delivery of bi-annual collections. It is now time for a change in course!
The UBANG universe will continue in a way that keeps making room for playfulness and laughter for the designer herself. At the same time, new collaborations and resource-conscious partnerships are on the way.
UBANG’s design creates the possibility for continued resource awareness, playfulness and laughter, which the world always needs. These are the qualities we will continue striving forward within the new UBANG. The first launch was therefore be an initiative to help support the works of Red Cross Denmark; a t-shirt with the important message of ‘PEACE’. The Peace tee is now available on ubang.dk and Rødekors.dk. (buy it here)
“Going forward, the new UBANG will focus on designing more than clothing and creating good designs that are also aware of the environment. I can’t wait for this new chapter and very excited to start working on unknown projects, using my experience with three dimensional design and sustainable production.” Says Ulla Bang Jørgensen
