From Artisans to You.
Love Dot aims to become the go-to destination for thoughtfully curated, sustainably made and ethically sourced fashion and lifestyle brands made by artisans around the world. Our products are often one-of-a-kind, sold in limited quantities, and made by emerging and established fashion entrepreneurs in Africa, South America, Europe and Australia. Each season we welcome new, unique items crafted from designers in some of the world’s most interesting locales.
So, where did the name "Love Dot" originate from?
Founded by Nneka Ude, Love Dot is a tribute to her mother, Dorothy Dudley, who would, at times, affectionately refer to herself as "Dot."
A doting mother, daughter and burgeoning world traveler, Dorothy's life was interrupted by cancer in 2016 before she and her daughter could finally put her passport to good use. Dorothy's love for unique, well-crafted statement pieces is the passion that fuels the business. Love Dot is meant to reflect all the places in the world that "Dot" would have loved to experience, but didn't have the time too. The spirit of her mother lives on through the brand.
