Our Story

Haute Baso is an ethical lifestyle brand for the modern individual looking for thoughtful, simple and functional designs. We offer an experiential shopping experience with blends of premium made in Rwanda fashion, food and beverage and arts. We are centered around the belief that “two heads are better than one” using fashion as a vehicle for positive change towards the empowerment of women and youth who are integral to our value chain while contributing to preservation of culture in Rwanda.

We draw inspiration from our vibrant culture to collaborate and merge traditional methods with new techniques to create pieces and experiences that are timeless. This philosophy exemplifies the modern African fashion industry’s outlook on combining sustainability, technology, modern design and African craftsmanship to produce beautifully made, ready to wear fashion & accessories.

As a Made in Rwanda brand, we pride ourselves in our collaborative approach which has led to collaborations with over 300 artisans in Rwanda, to produce accessories and home decor pieces for various collections. Since our inception in 2014, our collaborative design ethos has allowed our brand to foster strong relationships, allowing us to continuously innovate and create memorable pieces and moments.
