ZAZU Amsterdam was founded in 2016 by Marieke Andringa. During her travels in Ecuador she encountered beautiful garments from alpaca and merino wool. At this time Marieke was still a lawyer, however, the silky-soft textures of the wool and its luxurious luster is where the idea of Zazu Amsterdam was born and the first step in changing her career was made. She decided that with Zazu she would use those traditional materials to create premium knitwear with a fashionable design, and so she did.
Considering the fact that 35% of the Ecuadorian families still live in poverty, ZAZU’s aim was to produce locally to stimulate the local economy and to help these families to emerge from poverty.
