Zashadu is a leading African Sustainable Fashion Leather Artisanal Heritage brand, founded in 2010. All pieces are hand created by skilled local artisans, working with and keeping alive age-old West African leather working techniques, passed down through generations.
Working with local sustainably sourced leathers, exotic skins and rough-cut precious stones set in brass, every Zashadu piece is handcrafted.
At Zashadu we love to explore the tension between quiet elegance and unabashed glamour. Avoiding the use of superfluous fittings and fixtures to give precedence to the Leathers and Craftsmanship.
For over a decade, Zashadu has engaged in dialogue with traditional West African leather artistry, shaping the landscape with continually evolving sustainable practices, driven by the marriage between problem solving and creativity in order to shape fashion. At Zashadu, we believe in tackling waste through innovation
