ZigZagZurich is a new lifestyle brand founded and based in Switzerland. ZigZagZurich has a new design approach to textiles, supporting artists and designers, with locally manufactured quality products.
As demand grows for more art and design and less mass commerce in products, ZigZagZurich is a place for consumers who appreciate originality, quality and good design. We offer consumers a new way to enjoy art whilst supporting artists and discovering new talent with a range of home textiles and accessories produced from the finest luxury materials without the luxury price tag.
ZigZagZurich sees itself as part of the art and design community. Through ZigZagZurich consumers can discover new artists and follow their work outside of ZigZagZurich, exposing the artists to a large and receptive audience. It is important to us that we work in a positive way with the art community, using high quality materials and traditional production techniques and working closely with them during the design and production process.
We work with artists from a broad spectrum covering fine art, digital, illustration, avant-garde and more. By adopting this approach, we ensure there is a wide range of creative ideas and inspiration, and thus bring lots of fresh ideas into the ready-made home fabric industry.
With very different backgrounds, and working in different ways, its interesting to see how each artist translates their work into the medium of textile, and transforms it into something that people will love. There is a strong sense of the artists work in each design, whilst still retaining a connection with the skills of traditional textile design.
ZigZagZurich is a vertically integrated producer of textiles and accessories. By controlling the chain of supply from raw materials to finished goods, we are able to offer locally manufactured products that use the finest materials and finishes, combining unique designs and collections, whilst offering our customers true value for money.
Our main production in Italy mean we have direct control over what we produce, how it is produced and under what social and environmental conditions our goods are manufactured. We use the finest Egyptian Italian cottons and European linens to produce our textiles from in a range of weaves. Our yarn dyed textiles are coloured before they are woven given an incredible depth of colour. We weave our Alpaca Wool in sustainable mills. Our bed linens and textiles are hand finished, using artisan levels of confection and finishing, normally found on products costing two or three times more.
We look at the artists work, and how it could translate onto textiles.
We focus on the pieces we want to produce with the artists with our curation team globally
We work with the artists on refining the artwork for production. This includes work pattern, color way testing and taking hand drawn art Onto digital platforms for production
With the final art in hand, we work as a team to decide what fabrics the art should go on and What Format e.g. Bed linens, Blankets, Curtains and more.
Our experienced team controls the production to assure highest quality. Thats starts with sourcing the qualities of yarns and fabrics, Evaluating Production Techniques and logistically manage the production and deliveries. We produce nearly all our products in Italy meaning we have control over how its produced.
Our goal is to highlight our artists work and the story behind them. We do not want to hide away our designers like most brands, we believe the artist comes first, That is why every piece of work created is attributed to the person who designed it.
