For several years I have been pursuing an idea to produce a line of exclusive and unique luxury linen. I wanted to provide alternatives to the often bland or neutral options available in stores. This vision is now a reality. Together with my team, I have created these original designs and paintings on duvet covers bringing new energy and colour to our most private space – the bedroom. Art does not have to be confined to galleries. ZayZay is head turning, spirit boosting, limited edition art for the bed.
ZayZay Living is an exciting new chapter in my life – one which would not have begun without the tremendous support and enthusiasm of the following people. A heartfelt thank you and appreciation.
I would like to personally thank the following people for their invaluable contributions to the realization of ZayZay Living.
