All Client Stories

Zig Zag Asian Collection is a women-owned and operated company that specializes in unique, ethically curated apparel from Nepal & Thailand. Founded in 1998 amongst the Santa Cruz mountains, every member of the team must be administrators, designers, vendors, and wholesale shipping specialists on any given day. Founder, Afrid, always knew that she wanted to be the bridge that connects Santa Cruz to the magic of Asia. Working with family businesses, small workshops, women’s collectives, and cottage industries, their collection is entirely handmade. They believe that an appreciation for color, textile, and craftsmanship keeps us connected to artisans abroad and have been working with some of the same families for twenty years.
