Founded in 1991 by Alan Blau, UbU International Corporation had humble beginnings as a manufacturer of tie-dye sweats and T-shirts. In 1996, David Koral helped the brand achieve international recognition for a wider range of clothing that includes cult-favorite jackets, blouses, dresses, skirts, outerwear, and more. In 2016 Joe Leggo was made a partner. Joe has been with UbU for 12 years and serves as the treasurer / vice president and is the face of the brand at shows.
Our tagline, Pack Your Personality, reflects the items for which we are most fondly known: a line of novelty travel and leisure wear that is reversible, lightweight, packable, and blissfully wrinkle free, thanks to intricate hand pleating and fabric texturing.
Intended to help you express your fun and adventurous side, UbU clothing is available in a variety of colors and unique prints. Recently, our team has partnered with a curated group of artists who created custom designs for our bamboo tunics, reversible raincoats, and packable blazers.
