A story about coming home
What if we told you that your favourite activewear brand (that's us of course) was now even better?
It's still super comfy, with unique prints and deliciously soft biodegradable fabric, but its now being made here in New Zealand. That's right. New Zealand Made. Pretty cool right?! We think so!
It's made sense to us for a number of reasons to move our production here.
The main reason is to improve the control we have over the production process. Brazil becomes very far away if items arrive and they're not quite up to our high standard with either the manufacturing or quantities.
Here, it's not so far for us to drive a couple of hours up the road to sort it out.
If you've been following us for a while you'll know that it seems like every couple of collections we get big delays with customs pushing delivery timelines out even further. We've had a few sleepless nights wondering why the shipment status has said for two weeks that it's left Brazil but still hasn't arrived in Auckland. But no more! We can be far more confident of delivering our collections on time without the guessing game related to shipping and customs clearance.
One of the other exciting things is we can also work on product development with shorter time-frames - going backwards and forwards with Auckland as appose to Brazil will make a huge difference. Don't even get us started with the mail systems between our two great countries at times! We are pumped to start testing and creating new products for our colour loving fans.
We think it's pretty amazing to be able to stick with our ethical production values and apply them here in New Zealand. We've always made knowing where and how our products are produced a big priority for Zeenya. Building and maintaining these relationships in Brazil is one of the best things we've ever done and we will continue to make these connections a priority here in New Zealand.
We are continuing to work with our Brazilian supplier to bring you our Sport Range. We love the relationship we have here and the work that's gone into developing those products with them.
We are not changing our fabric. The feedback from our fans is that they love the way the fabric feels. For you as our customer there will be no change to the fit and quality of our core range. Leggings with have same great lengths with high waistbands. Soft and comfy crops, and as always, the prints will remain limited edition. We know how important a women's right to express herself individually is.
Our new collection, Elements will be available for Pre-sale on the 26th of February. We have seven stunning new prints coming at you in our core range (excluding Sport Range items) so we're pretty confident that if you're quick you'll find something you love.
