Always one-of-a-kind!

I started sewing as a teenager, learning the basics from my wonderful mother but never fully pursuing the craft until my husband gave me a sewing machine about 8 years ago, and I discovered a true passion for sewing. I taught myself how to make bags and create a variety of other goodies. I made a few purses as presents and everyone told me I should start selling them. And so, Zakiyaa was born!

My newfound obsession led me to become really fascinated with fabrics and build quite a stash over time. I enjoy working with both new and recycled materials; I love rediscovering vintage fabrics and giving them new life. I never make the exact same bag twice, and this has been a staple of my work.

I gave birth to my first child in 2012, a wonderful son who is the light of my life. Since his arrival, I have been making a lot of baby items, such as cloth diapers and baby shoes. Expect to see some baby items in my shop in the near future! I am also experimenting with making clothing, so that might be popping up in the store this year as well.

  • Money Order
All prices are in US dollars. For payment, I accept money orders, and electronic payments via Paypal. To purchase with Paypal, you do not need to be a registered member, you can use your Credit or Debit Card and it is 100% secure. If you experience any problems paying with Paypal, please contact me immediately.
Sold items are always shipped within 48 hours of receiving payment, via the United States Postal Service. I mainly use recycled materials for packaging because I prefer reusing boxes and envelopes rather than buying new ones all the time. This way I can keep shipping costs lower and not have to charge for packaging. The environment is better off that way too!

If you buy more than one item, I will gladly combine shipping. Combined shipping should get calculated automatically. If you have any questions about combined shipping, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want to make sure you are satisfied with your Zakiyaa bag. I take clear pictures of my bags and give accurate descriptions and measurements so that you know exactly what you are getting. Because I am a small business and each bag is one of a kind, I usually can not offer full refunds and I can only take returns if there is something wrong with the bag. If you are not satisfied with your bag, please contact me immediately and I will do everything I can to make things right.

Some feedback from happy customers:

"This bag is exactly what I was looking for! I love the fabric and my precious camera fits perfectly... nice and safe and away from sticky children fingers! Seller is awesome, and I will definitely be ordering more bags from her in the future."

"Zakiyaa was *incredible* to work with. Truly. She went above and beyond on this camera bag for me. And it turned out GREAT! I love it and I will definitely be telling all of my photography friends about her custom camera bags. Thank you so much Zakiyaa!"

"Zakiyaa is a really creative person who is very responsive and is easy to collaborate with. She translates ideas to reality and is a dear to work with :) Thanks again for the fabulous bag!"

"MMMMMM! Soooo chic, so cool. I have to keep stacks of Zakiyaa's business cards with me for all the compliments I get on it! Absolutely an asset to my wardrobe! Thank you!"

"I absolutely love this bag. I sent this fabric to Zakiyaa that I bought in a remote Tanzanian village and asked her to do whatever she thought would look best with it. She made impeccable use of the pattern, and the craftsmanship on this bag & clutch are incredible. We'll be doing more business in the future! THANK YOU!"
