Brand Story

xN Studio is a lifestyle. Without borders. Founded in Brooklyn, NY in 2011 by DC-area native Nasozi Kakembo, our multi-disciplinary design firm that resides at the intersection of classic and modern, East and West, innovative and subdued. We express our ethos in how we adorn our sacred spaces, whether those be our homes, our workspaces, or elsewhere. Traditional and timeworn textiles and techniques are the foundation of all of our collections, and from there, we modify the applications and functions to suit a modern and borderless lifestyle. 

xN Studio Modern African home decor with mudcloth and textiles


Our approach to design is intended to suit multiple purposes—our aesthetic signals a practical departure from the expected. The mudcloth and indigo pillows, and Fair Trade collections from Uganda have grown to become the keystone of our work. All of our work is proudly made on the east coast of the United States or in Africa, primarily in Uganda where we work traditional artisans to develop products for e-commerce, wholesale and interior design projects.
