Born in a remote village in the Ethiopian province of Wollo, ZAAF's creative designer, Abai, reflects deep influences that span from the countryside to the capitals of the world where she has lived and studied. Her life journey has taken her from an orphanage in Addis Ababa to the United States and the rest of the world, and back to Ethiopia. She is committed to using her background in economics and fine arts to create unique and practical expressions of beauty, and to open avenues of opportunity for talented artisans in Ethiopia and the rest of Africa.

ZAAF products are made from the finest materials beautifully integrated with ageless patterns created on traditional looms. Her designs draw upon precious cultural relics and allow them renewed expression through fresh, uplifting, modern designs. Color, texture, and form merge to create a discrete statement of elegance and practicality for those who are at home in the world.

ZAAF believes in exercising a very high standard for goods and products sourced from Ethiopia to produce a distinct statement of sophistication and functionality for our customers.
