Born and raised in Manhattan, the daughter of archaeologists, Ulla Johnson honed her signature style between the streets of New York and the far-flung destinations of their family travels. She has never wavered on her steadfast attention to the details of construction that have become her hallmark, basing each of her collections on a foundation of natural fibers, beautiful finishing, and ease of fit and form.
The Ulla Johnson label has become synonymous with custom prints, intricate embroideries, and fine tailoring, all of which have earned her a loyal and global customer base. With the introduction of a shoe collection in Fall 2013, the line now encompasses a full range of product categories sourced and produced worldwide with an emphasis on artisanal and handcrafted processes.
Ulla Johnson is a mindfully-made brand
The celebration and evolution of global craft and traditional techniques sit at the heart of Ulla Johnson. They work with a unique global supply chain of artisans and craftsman from countries including Peru, Uruguay, India, Kenya, Brazil, Ghana and the Philippines.

They care deeply about building a robust dialogue with their global partners and are committed in their work to actively give back.
