About ZuzuandLeelu

On Etsy since 2009

Zuzu & Leelu: Rebirth

In 2009, starting a shop on Etsy was an experiment to see how creations from my daily 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.

At Zuzu & Leelu, I want everyone to be able to carry that little piece of Sci-fi/Fantasy and spirituality mixed with my love for Asian and African/Black American cultures. I experiment with the mixture of these cultures that have always been a part of me. I especially love to mix Anime with traditional African fabrics.

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

*********
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.

Thank you for visiting and joining me in my creative world!
