Dagne Tedla & Xiomara Rosa-Tedla, a Father-Daughter business.
UnoEth, meaning 'one Ethiopia', is a father-daughter brand that reaches back to their roots and partners with artisans in Addis Ababa to craft handmade, leather handbags, totes, backpacks, duffles and accessories.
In all honesty, UnoEth started on accident.
Dagne suggested the two should start a business. Initially, Xiomara resisted as she was focused in her corporate career and busy personal life. Soon after, friends and co-workers asked when Dagne was heading back to Ethiopia and asked if they could place pre-orders!
After her initial hesitation and the growing demand for her leather messenger, Xiomara said 'yes' and hopped on board! She then designed several bag styles, Dagne helped their current artisan partner obtain his export license and thus, the birth of UnoEth began.
