Rose & Fitzgerald is an art, design and craft studio based in Kampala, Uganda. Founded by Courtney and Laren Poole, a Californian couple who fell in love with the beauty of the indigenous materials and craftspeople they encountered in their adopted home of East Africa. Rose & Fitzgerald endeavors to preserve traditions and create unexpected, beautiful pieces mixing age-old craft with a simplistic, contemporary aesthetic.
Each piece Rose & Fitzgerald produces is handmade by individual artisans using luxurious materials that have been sourced locally. Artisan techniques such as carpentry, hand chiseling, carving, sculpting, casting, metalworking, hand-looming, and weaving are techniques that have been passed down through generations. All Rose & Fitzgerald producers receive, at minimum, beyond fair trade wages and a healthy, ethical working environment.
