Absolutely beautiful!! Can’t wait to give them to my daughter for her birthday. Super quick delivery also.

Really well made from super soft silk. Beautiful, vibrant colours. My daughter loves them. I probably should have ordered the smaller size. The upside to this is that they will bring dressing up joy to her for the next few years.

The origins of ziezo
Ziezo is a Dutch word that means ‘it’s all right’. It reflects my feeling that I had when I accepted being able to be a stay at home mom of 4 little ones and being able to spend more time crafting again after years of studying and being professionally engaged. It also means ‘sawa’ a commonly uttered word, actually more an expression in Swahili, one of the languages used in Kenya.
Ziezo is the label I created when I rediscovered my desire to create beautiful and functional items again, after a long time of focusing on professional advancement. The creations are heavily inspired by Waldorf Education and Steiner philosophy as my children are attending a Waldorf Kindergarten/School in Kenya. It all started with some kiddie aprons in the beautiful traditional materials such as Kikoy and Kanga fabrics (both 100 % cotton), grew to 100% wool felt crowns, wool and cotton Waldorf dolls, 100% silk butterfly wings and it is still expanding as the kids are getting bigger and their play changes.
I prefer to use natural materials and try to source them locally. That might mean buying and using raw wool from the local weaver, or that I use a 100% lambs wool jumper that originated in Europe or North America but bought at ‘mitumba’ (the second hand market) in East Africa.
In the end it does come down to the fact that each product is carefully handcrafted. Thanks for considering to purchase a creation!
