"I've always liked textures. There's something comforting and familiar in natural materials and our personal, tactile relationship with them. 

Coming from a family of craftspeople, handmade objects were always a part of my childhood. This deeply influenced my creativity and curiosity in making things.”

Lucyné Babayan, founder of UL

New beginnings

It all started when Lucy, a native Armenian, moved to San Francisco to begin a new chapter. After she spent a majority of her life doing other things, she decided to go back to designing physical objects. 

At first, her goal was simple: to create contemporary objects that tell meaningful stories, but that eventually evolved into a journey of belonging and finding her voice. 

Reclaiming your voice

When you are comfortable in your own skin, within your own identity: you are unmovable. It’s that simple. The not-so-simple part is getting there. 

UL wants you to be comfortable in your own skin by first being comfortable, period. Find a scarf that draws you in, or a story that resonates with your own.

Designed with intention

As we become more aware of the impact of our choices on the environment, creating sustainable textiles shouldn’t be the goal, but the standard. By using honestly-sourced materials and fair practices, we can help reduce the fashion industry's already-massive carbon footprint and preserve our natural resources for future generations. In short, let’s work together to stay together.
