FASHION FOR GOOD

We should all have the right to be the best version of ourselves. To feel brave, bold, fierce and confident. To dream big and realise those dreams.
Each ZURII piece creates a unique opportunity for you to empower a woman in need across the world. The gift of support and opportunity to shape their own future.
Through our Fashion For Good initiative, in partnership with The Hunger Project, we are working to empower 50 women across Africa this year. Each woman gains access to micro-finance loans and financial literacy training to help her build the life she dreams of.
That dream may be to start her own business, fund her child’s schooling or gain her own education through training and skills based programs.
The world we live in is flawed, real, gritty and imperfectly perfect. So often our desire for beautiful and luxurious things conflicts with our overwhelming desire to give back. ZURII pieces mean you don't have to choose. We empower you to look good, feel great and make a positive impact in someone else’s life.
LORNA'S STORY – MICRO-FINANCE IN ACTION
Can $80 really change your life?
Absolutely... Meet Lorna. She is a strong, brave, successful business owner. But this wasn’t always her story.
Living with HIV in rural Uganda, she had no income and little opportunity. But a microfinance loan – of just $80 – changed everything.
Lorna paid her son’s school fees and purchased a goat with her loan. She then sold the goat’s milk to generate income for her family.
One goat soon turned into a small business. She now owns several animals and a plot of land she rents to women growing their own food. Today Lorna can support her family and is empowering other women in her village. Access to a microfinance loan changed her life.
Your purchase is helping change the lives of real women just like Lorna.
