Welcome to our family!

Zand Amsterdam is a young innovative company who has introduced a fresh, funky and unique design to the world of women’s clothing.

The four sided wrap skirt is created with playful combinations of colourful fabrics which are eye catching and fun. Both frivolous and functional, the reversible design of the skirts allows women to celebrate their individuality and style, whilst minimizing the number of outfits they need.

With different vibrant fabrics on each side and a reversible top and bottom band, this is a skirt that enables women to create 4 distinct looks with ease.

The top band can also be detached and worn as a stand-alone belt with handy detachable pouch. All of this and more, the popper fastening system on the waistband adjusts from size 8 - 18 making them ideal for pregnant women or women whose weight may fluctuate.

Each skirt is a unique combination of fabrics resulting in a stunning collection of countless individual skirts in long (45cm), medium (35cm) and short (30cm).

These many innovative features combined in one skirt have given life to a piece of clothing so exciting and versatile that women from across the spectrum of age, style and size are drawn to the sense of adventure and possibility that it stirs up in them.

Following is a little video explaining how the skirt works:

 

What makes our skirts "fair"?

  • Reuse of materials; We have so many different unique skirts, since we buy leftover fabrics. Of each print we might only have a maximum of 300 metres. Surplus fabrics are pieces of fabric left over after production of apparel from other manufacturers and brands.
  • Skirts from Zand Amsterdam are made in our factory in India. We employ approximately 250 tailors under good working conditions. Our tailors earn three times as much as the average tailor wage in India. We stick to our principle: "the pie is big enough to be shared evenly."
  • The 'foursided' property of our skirts minimizes the number of garments a person needs. We are in favor of consuming less instead of more!
  • The double row of snap fasteners; the skirt keep fitting well when you gain weight and / or lose weight. No need to buy new clothes.
  • We opt for the use of high quality materials so that the wrapskirt will last. Our skirts easily last more than five years.

Why did we start Zand Amsterdam ?

Instead of going for a mind-numbing 9-to-5 job we decided to do what we really like... and that is design hip, multifunctional and original clothing which we manufacture in India.

What is our philosophy ?

  • Design without comprise
  • Bring color back into the world
  • Fairly traded: We pay our Indian tailors 3 times as much as the average tailor gets paid. This ensures a high level of quality and an improvement of the welfare of the tailor and his family. A win-win situation. We take strict care no children are involved in the manufacturing of our products.
