PARTNER FAMILIES

From the Amazons of Brazil, Northern Ghana, the Himalayas of India, to the magic of central Asia in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan, read the story of our partner families responsible for our beautiful Zazi co-creations.

FAMILY OF ARTISANS

Each Zazi piece is a result of intentional collaborations designed with over 700 artisans from all corners of the world. With our partner families, we weave traditional and ancestral techniques with contemporary ideas to co-create garments imbued with the cultures, places, and stories of which our artisan families wish to tell. 

We truly believe that every garment we co-create carries the story of its maker and their relationship to cloth through tradition, craft, skill, and material. Looking beyond ‘sustainability’, Zazi is created on the principles of true collaboration and co-creation, allowing space for regrowth and working in harmony with our land, local biodiversity, seasons, and the incredible humans that weave our products into existence. Our hope at Zazi is to truly celebrate our artisan partners and their craft.
