Zilalia – unique products that respect nature
Today is the perfect lounge day to curl up with a great magazine and daydream! Especially on one of these NEST extra-large cushions, hand-knit by skilled women of a fair trade production unit in Nepal. It has a beanbag feeling for soft nesting and can be used for casual relaxing. The NEST is the brainchild of Zilalila.
Inspired by fair trade women projects during the many trips made to India & Nepal, two creative hearts passionate about pure materials and handmade products in an honest world, Sam IJsbrandy and Anita Bakos, founded Zilalia. A socially-conscious company with a passion for making beautiful products that reconcile style and sustainability, Zilalia’s production unit has over 240 producers, benefiting over 2,500 family and local community members. They provide job opportunities for graduates of the vocational training programmes, which enables the organisation to be self-sustaining through the sales of their products.
