Your Life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
Especially my studies of Textile Engineering in Hamburg opened new doors. On the one hand, it supplied me with rare textile knowledge, on the other hand I got attracted to Bali. I spent my semester abroad and did an internship on this incredible island. Gathering invaluable experiences, I just knew that there was something bigger out there to do after my studies.
Instead of beanies, I started focussing on street- and surfwear. But I wanted to do it differently than others! From day one, I was keen to source the best fabrics of the finest quality and started field testing them.
While the first collection consisted of men's and women's wear, I quickly recognized that my strengths were in the women’s section. That made me realign the product range, so that nowadays Zealous offers Surfwear, Apparel, Accessories and Lifestyle products for women!
Whatever I did or decided on this journey, I always stayed true to myself and designed what I needed myself.
