Buqisi-Ruux is a shoe brand that celebrates powerful African women and represents the diversity, vibrancy and boldness that lies within the African continent through its African inspired heels. Started by three young female entrepreneurs, Buqisi-Ruux is about us, our love for Africa and appreciation to African women, the backbone of our society.
The name, Buqisi-Ruux, means “Queen of the Village”. Buqisi comes from an ancient Egyptian word meaning Queen while Ruux represents our home-town Rukungiri. The name symbolizes what we as “Buqisi-Ruux” find important; our African heritage and the sensation of royalty and pride we want women to feel when they wear a pair of Buqisi-Ruux shoes.
Our Mission is to share a piece of Africa with the world through the unique heels we create at Buqisi-Ruux.
Each pair of shoes is a piece of art, some say, “wearable art”.
