About ZuzuandLeelu

Zuzu & Leelu: Rebirth

One day I thought to myself: I need to make my shop reflect more of me. I want to sprinkle it with Japanese culture and entertainment (I'm an otaku!), my African/American roots and my love for all things Sci-fi and Fantasy.

In 2009, starting a shop on Etsy was an experiment to see how my hobbies would sell. I was not fully engaged in every aspect of running an online shop. So four years later, after getting even more creative with my ideas, I decided it was time to start treating my Etsy store as a business. Hence, Shanasaki Designs became Zuzu & Leelu.

Behind the Name:

Zuzu is the nickname of my son, taken from a season 4 episode of Futurama. Leelu is a variation of my daughter's seldom used nickname, Leeloo from The Fifth Element. It made me smile when I came up with it and reminds me of the joy that adds to the inspirations for the shop.

**********

At Zuzu & Leelu, I want everyone to be able to carry that little piece of Sci-fi/Fantasy mixed with Japanese and African flavors. As a bonus, I may even be able to share my spiritual journey with all the gemstones I live with and love.

I make many of my items while listening to music during the day (Hackers Soundtrack, anime soundtracks, 90s...). If it's late at night, I'll be watching Doctor Who or whatever show I can't stay away from. ^_^

My shop is always evolving, as I am always growing, and I want to incorporate that journey into all I create.
