OUR ZEALOUS ECO-SYSTEM IS BUILT AROUND COMMUNITY
Based in Bali for the last eight years, our founder Marie incorporates the local community in every part of the production process. From independent tailors, only a short walk from where she lives, to known factories that can take care of bigger orders, each Zealous product truly speaks the sustainable essence of the community.
Although the fashion and textile industry has a bad reputation worldwide, Marie strives to implement solutions that enable her workforce to enjoy the experience and their work. No garment or swimsuit will ever be produced by force, underage workers, or within poor working conditions. Zealous is a small team that collaborates to create the best surf swimwear and activewear for women globally.
Zealous works with three different factories and agencies and two independent tailors and screen printers. Here’s a little more about them.
Rosa is the hand behind most of our ‘Island of Gods’ collection. She runs her small manufacturing business straight from her house.
Responsible for most of our apparel, Putu took over a clothing factory from his dad and is now not only a collaborator but a great friend too.
With loads of experience in the garment industry, Intan is an independent Indonesian woman running her own swimwear manufacturing agency. She helps me keep track of the production process, pattern making, and QC.
Our favorite independent tailor with the brightest smile on the island. He sews our beach wraps, beach towels, and accessories.
The family-owned business is only two minutes away from our Zealous office. Not only do they screen print and sew our tote bags and bikini wet bags, but they are also always keen on a good joke.
A lovely couple just around the corner from our office! They produce all ‘Breeze by Zealous’ products in very limited quantities, sometimes as small as two pieces.
Without our lovely seamstresses, your clothes wouldn’t be as good as they are. Every piece is handmade, and we check our factories regularly to make sure the seamstresses can work under good conditions.
