“ My parents love, my Brazilian childhood portrayal ”

Uma and Leopold: The story began in the late 70s in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Founder Lara’s father was a leather craftsman for some of the most distinguished stores in the city. Hence, she grew up in the family atelier environment. Following her father’s footsteps, she started producing her handmade clothing lines in Rio at an early age.

Lara crossed the Brazilian borders and first moved to Bali to embrace the opportunity to continue her father’s trade. She was immediately fascinated by the Indonesian culture,
art scene, and artisanship. Not long after, Uma and Leopold was born. The name stems from the word connection. Uma and Leopold is a connection between her childhood in Brazil, her life, and the Indonesian values and craftsmanship that inspire her every day.

so much to learn from others,
and so much to explore. ”
