Radiant Resonance – Illustrating Women’s Creativity
The Latitude 0° Kampala
12 Oct – 24 Nov 2023
The EBIRUNGI Art Exhibition presented by Latitude 0°, Kampala, has become a hallmark of its dedication to fostering creativity and providing a platform for emerging talent in the Ugandan art scene. In its third edition, the theme is “Illuminating Women’s Creativity.
José Hendo who was invited as a guest artist and mentor to the young artists gave a speech at the opening event.
As an advocate for sustainability and circularity I have chosen to use barkcloth because it is my heritage and the perfect ambassador for sustainability. There is a common theme that runs through all the artwork. All are made using Ugandan barkcloth and focus on helping save our planet. All chosen because of the theme ‘Radiant Resonance Illuminating Women’s Creativity’.

EARTH DAY 2023
The Virtual Mutuba Tree project
22 April 2023 http://barktotheroots.org/vmt/
R3 is the logo for our Eco-Sustainable Campaign:
R3 stands for REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE.
Impelled by the 2013 tragedy of the Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh, Jose Hendo launched her R3(Reduce Reuse Recycle) Campaign.
To encourage change, this campaign uses workshops, talks and exhibitions. We also use the R3 logo on garments and accessories to promote the campaign. “It is down to all of us, every man, woman and child to help save our planet.”
We use eco materials and upcycled garments alongside organic Ugandan barkcloth. Purchasing our products made in the UK contributes to helping the Planet, as a percentage of the proceeds goes to support the community we work with in Uganda, plant more mutuba trees from which the barkcloth is made, and help save their cultural heritage.
The theme for Earth Day 2023 is “Invest in Our Planet.” In keeping with this we are asking people to share how they use R3 (Reduce Reuse Recycle) principles to help our Planet.

R 3 is the logo for our Eco-Sustainable Campaign: R 3 stands for REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE. In 2014, impelled by the tragedy of the Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh, Jose Hendo launched her R 3 (Reduce Reuse Recycle) Campaign using workshops, talks, and exhibitions to encourage change; “It is down to all of us, every man, woman and child to save our planet.”
We use eco materials alongside organic barkcloth. The making of barkcloth in Uganda is a centuries-old technique. It is considered the oldest cloth made by man and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Material in 2005. “As the Mutuba tree regenerates another bark to be harvested every year for up to sixty years and more, this organic cloth that predates the weaving era is the best ambassador for sustainability.”
By purchasing one of our products you are helping the planet, as a percentage of the proceeds will go to support the community we work with in Uganda, plant more mutuba trees, and save an intangible heritage. All the products are made in the UK.

Your donation of £20 goes towards a mutuba tree seedling and training young men in learning how to nurture and harvest the trees, and to make barkcloth. In return not only are you giving back to the planet but we will adorn a piece of barkcloth with your initials, we then upload this image as a leaf onto the Virtual Mutuba Tree that will be on http://www.barktotheroots.
Inside Fashion (R)Evolution – Between Circular Economy and alternative Materials. Barkcloth – Alternative Materials for Sustainability in Fashion by Jose’ Hendo
20 April 2021
A civil society organisation in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany, campaigning for sustainability in various aspects of the daily life. On the occasion of the Fashion Revolution Week (commemorating the Rana-Plaza disaster in Bangladesh), we plan an online-seminar on alternative materials in fashion. Sustainability in Fashion by Jose’ Hendo
On 24th April is the anniversary of the collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory in 2013 in Bangladesh. Commemorating this disaster, the “Fashion Revolution Week” was established, to shed light on the continuing exploitation in the garment industry.
In this context, we would like to invite you to our online-discussion “Inside Fashion (R)Evolution” on Tuesday, 20th April from 07:00 to 09:00 PM (CEST).
While we are calling for a revolution in garment manufacturing, the evolution is already on the way. Get to know with us two innovative representatives of these developments.
After short presentations of our speakers, there will be plenty of room for direct talks and questions about the materials and procedures presented. Look forward to an informative evening, focussing on solutions rather than problems.

Care-Rewear-Repair-Recycle-Upcycle being the new normal
R3 Campaign Panel Conversation
16th April 2021
After the Rana Plaza factory collapse in April 2013, José Hendo decided to start my R3 Campaign to encourage people to prolong the life of their garments by mending, altering or upcycling. She wanted to be visual and vocal about the dark side of fast fashion and throw away culture while striving for sustainability. During the last year of the pandemic hopefully we have had time to rethink our impact on the environment. This spurred her to host a panel discussion about Care-Rewear-Repair-Upcycle being the new normal. A recording of this event will be available on José Hendo’s YouTube channel in due course.
‘José Hendo’ takes a fresh approach to contemporary fashion design, challenging the obsolescence nature of fashion, and the throw away culture. The label is passionately conscious of the times and is inspired by the world around us. It uses eco-friendly fabrics as much as possible, creating unique one-off pieces…
