STORY: We work with hand-crafted materials – termeh hailing directly from Yazd in Iran – once a key stop on the silk road. Our garments can feel both casual and special – wearing one of our pieces is wearing a garment with a story, a journey, a bridge between cultures.
We chose Zāl as our eponymous hero because of the breadth of his story. Abandoned as a child, Zal was found and raised by Simorgh (a mythical bird that can be equated with Europeans’ legendary phoenix), who made him a strong and wise warrior – but love is also a large part of his story. Simorgh gave him a feather that he could burn should he ever need her help – as a sign that he always had someone, and core values to come back to. We aim for similar ideals to run through our designs – a strong relationship to their garments’ makers and meanings, as they venture out into the world.
STYLING: Versatile pieces – can be worn over dresses, skirts or jeans.
