Welcome to ZAAZEE, a multi-award winning independent British women’s sportswear brand. Launched in 2014 and based in Manchester ZAAZEE uses only the best quality fabrics, with super stylish designs and made in small expert factories in Europe and the  UK. It’s really comfortable kit and is designed specifically for sporty active women.

WHAT MAKES ZAAZEE DIFFERENT

ZAAZEE was founded by Deborah Todd in Ancoats, Manchester. Driven by a passion for sports, Deborah believes that wearing awesome kit makes you feel great and helps you achieve more.

ZAAZEE uses only amazing technical fabrics which have been sourced based on their performance, stretch, vibrancy and durability. The fabrics and products have been specifically sourced for purpose, tested, developed and tested again. We want our customers to enjoy sport and feel fantastic wearing ZAAZEE.

MANUFACTURED IN EUROPE and in the UK 

A great deal of time was spent researching where to produce ZAAZEE. Originally the idea was to produce ZAAZEE in the UK. Having a family background in retail and sewing, (my aunt was a seamstress.) and living in Ancoats, Manchester, it’s an area that was once home to huge Cotton Mills and has a history of manufacturing. I honestly believe you can feel the energy from early days gone by. 

After exploring the factories of many manufacturers in the UK and trying to find the correct machinery and expert cutters and materials, I made a choice to make with our neighbours in Europe. It has a great reputation for quality textile manufacturing and huge brands who I respect all manufacture there. 

The factories we work with are small who have been working in the trade for years.  We feel good to be helping these small businesses too.

Last year the brand launched the first piece of menswear, a top called the ZION, which received rave reviews from Runners World.
