♡ OUR STORY
We are a small family-run label, carefully crafting Bralettes, Swimwear and Yoga Wear.
ESSENTIALS FOR ZULA is a collection infused with the spirit of light summer days, healthy living, and travels. The pieces are delicate and playful, yet functional and fair at the same time.
ESSENTIALS FOR ZULA was created by founder & designer, Delie Kastner. She was born and raised in Bangkok. Her father, originally Austrian, moved to Thailand to establish a small-medium sized factory in Bangkok.
30 years later, motivated by her father's drive and compassion for work and her mother's fashionable instincts; she became inspired to launch her own project:
ESSENTIALS FOR ZULA
The name ZULA (pronounced "zoo-la") was intentionally chosen for it's unfamiliarity. A unique and alien female name, allowing the concept to be crafted from scratch. The aim was to create basic garments, that belong in every woman's wardrobe, using only the finest fabrics.
BEHIND THE SEAMS
Since the birth of the online shop in 2015, ESSENTIALS FOR ZULA was run entirely out of a single room that functioned as a studio, showroom, office and bedroom.
Her hobby soon evolved into a signature collection of Bralettes. Based between Vienna and Bangkok, she works side by side with her father to produce and bring her project to life.
Detached from the seasons of the fashion industry, ESSENTIALS FOR ZULA is a slow fashion project. Each piece is made-to-order to avoid any surplus waste. In addition to this, all of our garments are made in-house to ensure that all pieces are crafted fair: with the highest integrity and honesty.
The fabrics are locally sourced, weaved and dyed in Thailand.
Due to this, each piece is unique and may vary in colour and texture, but all pieces are beautiful in its own way. We look forward to sending out your beautiful pieces.
