Zuri and Imani, founded by textile designer entrepreneur, Joy Ezeka, has built a reputation for its uniquely beautiful cotton coat designs, produced using its own studio designed textiles. This month sees the brand launching its brand new collection of the LeManteau coats which made it so popular with its customers. The new collection celebrates the best of its original print designs and colour ranges, but in new and exciting silhouettes to suit any wearer.
Zuri and Imani is a textile and surface design studio in South Africa, renowned for its original and exclusive pattern print designs and colours. The design studio's portfolio includes its core product, a collection of ladies coats, complimented by a range of fashion accessories including scarves, canvas sneakers, leather bags, as well as textiles. The company also works on bespoke commissions, collaborations and licensing.
Zuri and Imani have now launched six new styles of its core product, LeManteau-UNE-07/19, designed in modern silhouettes, with an oversize fit and street-style aesthetic. The coats are timeless pieces, not conditioned nor determined by any trend, era or season. What makes the new range unique is that the coats are made in ZURIandIMANI mid-weight cotton fabrics, which can be worn in almost any season and available in limited numbers. Each style is made in ZURIandIMANI fabric in selected print colours.
Speaking about the launch of the new LeManteau range of coats this month, Zuri and Imani founder, Joy Ezeka, said: “Our UNafraid customers, who embrace individuality and exclusivity through the 'art of originality', will know that there will only be a number of them that own that coat in that particular print pattern and/or colour.”
As founder, Joy says her aspirations for the Zuri and Imani brand are to be regarded as the company that changed the narrative of the African print and brought 'ownership' back to Africa. The company wants to be celebrated for the brand’s bold and creative approach to colour and print. It is working towards becoming Africa's most exciting lifestyle luxury design brand known for its unique coats. It wants to build a renowned reputation for its unique patterned prints and fabrics.

Founder Joy Ezeka adds: “Our mission is to establish 'Made in Africa' as a seal of excellence and change the narrative of the 'African Print' by weaving modern stories through our designs, rooted in the African context, promoting exclusivity and authenticity, but still retaining an awareness of current trends in design. Our company's DNA is rooted in this promise- 'Made in Africa, by Africans’."
