Rose & Fitzgerald is a Ugandan design and craft studio that was born from of an American couple’s move to Kampala and their desire to share the craft and creativity of their adopted home with design lovers around the world, shining a spotlight on the skills and talent that is often over-looked in the global design industry.
Working from their design studio and the various workshops in Kampala, the Rose & Fitzgerald collections of home goods and fashion accessories are produced using local raw materials such as palm leaf, Ankole horn, wood, cotton and brass that in the hands of skilled artisans working with age-old traditions ranging from carpentry, hand-spinning to metal casting are turned into stylish covetable interior accessories collections. More than just a product, each creation honours the tradition of making and is infused with the heart and soul of those involved, telling their stories.
Each product we design is handmade from start to finish in a workshop in Uganda—giving the pieces a heart, soul, and story. After all, a home should be found, not fabricated.
– Courtney Rose and Laren Fitzgerald, founders Rose & Fitzgerald
