Meet ZURII – The Australian Fashion Label Combining Style With Purpose

Kira Simpson

“Buy less, choose well, make it last.”

These famous words, by designer Vivienne Westwood, encourage buying fashion in a way which spurns seasonal trends. Teaching us to invest in timeless, well made pieces which become the staples of your wardrobe.

Something Australian luxury ethical fashion brand ZURII does incredibly well.

Founder Patrice Gibbons believes in conscious luxury, and has created a business where style and purpose go hand in hand.

Keeping in line with the basic principles of slow fashion, each ZURII bag is handmade in a small family run atelier in Spain, designed to be loved and worn for a lifetime.

"Each ZURII piece creates a unique opportunity for you to empower a woman in need across the world."

Giving Back

ZURII also work in partnership with The Hunger Project on their Fashion For Good initiative, which helps women in Africa gain access to micro-finance loans and financial literacy training providing the ability to start their own businesses. Every purchase has the power to change a woman’s life.

ZURII is more than luxury leather goods.
 
It’s is a movement – a lifestyle, a new way of thinking about fashion and the impact we can have as conscious consumers. ZURII is where beauty collides with slow fashion. Where style meets purpose. Where conscious luxury begins.

"Our limited edition collections are built on the understanding that good things take time - wine, food, careers…and leather goods."

See How they’re made

There is something special about knowing the story behind your favourite bag, clutch or wallet. Rather than share the details of how much time, care, love and attention goes into each ZURII piece, I want to show you. 

Here is a sneak peek behind the scenes. I snapped these images in our atelier on my last trip to Spain.

That’s me left, checking the grain in the leather before I selected it as the perfect colour and texture for our London Weekenderbag. Below are can see pieces from the ESTILO collection being created by hand. (see behind the scenes here)

Enjoy!
