Haute|Baso is a social enterprise company that uses fashion and interior design as a vehicle for positive change. The brand was born based on the idea that “two heads are better than one.” The founders are two young female Rwandan designers who hold a common belief in the strength of their country’s unique aesthetic.

Haute|Baso designs luggage, jewelry, apparel and interior décor pieces by mixing materials, such as leather, African print fabric, cotton and raffia. The majority of its fabric and raw material are sourced from Rwanda.

Haute|Baso draws its inspiration from Rwanda’s dynamic and culturally vibrant history while adding a modern touch. The designs merge different skill sets and creative processes to produce unique and marketable pieces.
