Inspired by our love story and our travels around the globe, we created Qujami to bring modern Bohemian clothes, hats, headwear, and accessories to the world.
Founded in 2005 in lovely Goa, India, Qujami now has three physical locations on exquisite Koh Samui and Phuket, Thailand. Online, Qujami’s boutique has 5000 unique and loyal members. We serve department stores, boutiques, luxury hotels, and customers in Thailand, Japan, India, and several countries in Asia and Europe.
As citizens of the world, designers, and fashion connoisseurs, we design and curate fashion with a genuine love of the craft, of people, and the world our textiles are derived from. We create and source clothing, Hat & sandal with comfort, durability, freedom, and practicality in mind, yet we never compromise on premium quality and craftsmanship.
The result is a collection that is the perfect balance of Bohemian chic, vintage looks, easy wear, and modern fashion.
The Qujami collection reflects a casual and original mood in styles for every season, and comfortable chic for every man, woman, and child. We share this timeless, borderless, and ever-evolving collection with the full spectrum of humanity.
Moving forward, we want to continue to bring together fresh trends and the classic styles of yesteryear to create original and modern Bohemian beauty.
We create what we love, and love to wear what we create. We hope you will, too.
About Yumiko and Uziel
“We strive to make products that we want to use, articles that won’t be common or mass-produced like items you’ll find in big retail chains. I founded Qujami to express my passion, and to create articles I would want to wear. I’m happy to have found kindred spirits, around the world and by my side, who share my sense of style.”Yumiko, Founder. Fashion and Style Director. Designer. Model. Chief of Sourcing. Social Media Director. Partner. Mother.
“What makes Qujami special is that it’s built on a balance of contrasts. We are a man and a woman from two very different backgrounds, yet we share a common vision and concept. We’re always seeking ways to express our passion for the timelessly trendy and the casually classy through our products.”Uziel, Managing Director. Photographer. Production Manager. Chief of Visual Design and Concepts. Partner. Father.
We fell in love in paradise (Koh Phangan, Thailand) at a wedding party for friends.
With Yumiko’s exotic beauty and Uziel’s sharp photographer’s eye, we started a journey across the world that nurtured our love for each other and for neo-Bohemian fashion.
Along the way, our expedition taught us just as much about ourselves as it did the world. Qujami wouldn’t exist as it does today without the bond we share, the lives we’ve created, the experiences we’ve had, and the friends we’ve made.
We’re looking forward to creating new, beautiful products and sharing them with the world.
What Does Qujami Mean?
Our wonderfully unique name is a hybrid of two important words: Yumiko and Kujaku.
Kujaku is the Japanese word for “Peacock.” The Peacock is colorful, beautiful, graceful, and proud. It is India’s national bird. It perfectly complements the elegance of Yumiko, and honors the place where it all started in Goa many years ago.
