Do you know where your last purchase was made? How many times have you realized that you were wearing some clothes only during one season and then you completely forget about them?
All these questions lead us to the concept of Slow Fashion.
Slow Fashion (or Sustainable Fashion) is the awareness and involvement of buying clothes better-quality garments that will last for longer. This kind of fashion values fair treatment of people, animals and the planet. It is the opposite of fast fashion which represents the fantasy of unconscious consumption of buying more clothes to make us happy.
A workspace that encourages
We are transparent about our production. From the beginning, our aim was to manufacture everything locally. Now we are proud to say that every pair of ZYNE shoes is made thanks to a Moroccan woman from one of the cooperatives we are partners with.
As part of our ZYNE family, these women earn money for themselves and their families, as well as gaining a sense of independence and confidence, because their contribution to our business is recognized by the world.
Every day, our skin comes in contact with different materials. The real question is how these substances can affect us and what impact they have on the environment. Our RAFFIA collection is made of raffia fibers – a natural given material. The harvesting of the raffia palm leaves, the dying and the packing are done manually by locals with the utmost respect for the environment. It is 100% natural and therefore biodegradable.
Shoes that will last a lifetime
The key to consume less is to buy products of a better quality. Buying fashion that is timeless is not just an investment but also a way to contribute to slow fashion. Choosing products of better quality which you will wear longer helps you not only save your budget but also reduce the negative impact on the environment. Our shoes are made with durability and comfort in mind as well. Our designs are timeless and made to last a lifetime.
Sustainable fashion is about the daily choices we make. We appreciate that our customers feel concerned by where our products were made, by whom, and how the materials are sourced.
