Each bag is handmade by our partner ASIGE in Bolgatanga, Ghana and named after its founder Dorcas.

We hope that you feel the craftsmanship and love that is woven into every piece.
When it comes to running a small company with purpose, there are so many costs that are both unseen and seen. From renting our Zazi world in the heart of Amsterdam to the worldwide creatives we work with every day. From the most talented pattern makers, photographers, muses to the endless calls to perfection every co-creation up to the smallest seem. From our community work of tracking your order to packing them with love, and a little note before it arrives with you.

*Our co-creations are a process of months of calls and love letters to our partners to get to know them and their stories. Two teams of women coming together from far corners of the world to create products made with the intentionality to truly connect you to the stories interwoven in them. If there is money left by the end of this process, it is directly invested into a new community so we can slowly grow this company step by step.
We hope you feel the love we weave through every garment.
