Upenyu means Life
In the African language of Shona which originates from Zimbabwe, Africa Upenyu means Life.
In a time when uniqueness and creativity is a key element in compelling consumers to part with their hard-earned cash, Upenyu Clothing is able to carve a strong niche through our award-winning designs and brand. The Upenyu Clothing t-shirt collection has become a symbol of expression for our fans for example conveying the emotion of love for music or the desire to express the uniqueness that one feels within them. Through this relationship with our fans, Upenyu Clothing, in these tough times, can boast a long list of loyal customers from all over the world. The Upenyu brand aims to satisfy each consumer with the quality of our clothing, its look, feel and fabric.

Upenyu aims to simply conjure up good and positive emotions thus we are not just a clothing line, we are a part of you!
Upenyu Incorporated was founded by two young Zimbabweans with a vision of creating a clothing line that expressed all aspects of life; capturing the spirit of finding joy through adversity and holding onto moments that evoke emotions of peace and happiness with the sole purpose of reminding us of what is beautiful about upenyu. Check out the Upenyu collection in our Gallery and you are guaranteed to find a design that will evoke your emotions of peace and happiness. Please tell us your positive reactions to any of the Upenyu designs or share with us an idea of a design you might have for us on our Testimonial page.
Part of the proceeds from the sales from the upenyu.com store will go to various charities in Zimbabwe which are in dire need of any assistance. We partner with different AIDS orphanages and other organizations in the country. Upenyu Inc. is also organizing other fund-raising initiatives besides the clothing collection. If you are interested in going above-and-beyond in helping the children of Zimbabwe please let us know how you wish to contribute in any form at email@example.com
