Vancouverite Bridget Tidey travelled around the world, before settling in Mexico to develop a design studio based on ‘the principles of art, balance and longevity’.
Now based in Mexico City, the line uses natural fiber fabrics to create modern minimalistic silhouettes, inspired by muted landscapes and soft textures. Each piece is handmade and tailored locally in small workshops in downtown Mexico City.
‘We’re very much texture and quality focused. Zii Ropa is based on the principles of simplicity, longevity and the creation of timeless pieces that are cherished and durable. We strive to challenge the fast-paced and wasteful fashion industry by using recycled, deadstock fabrics and concentrating on seasonless, made-to-last items. When we are unable to use repurposed fabrics, we make sure to source high-quality organic fabrics to ensure that our pieces have a long life span.’
