For Zee Store, African culture and heritage are rich sources of inspiration for our designs. The diversity of African cultures means that there are countless design elements to draw from, including traditional clothing, patterns, music, dance and colors. These give our designs a strong personality and a sense of culture.

Nature is another great source of inspiration for you. The natural world is full of colors, patterns, and textures that can be translated into clothing designs. For a brand like ours fully centered on African designs, this could include drawing inspiration from the colors of the African landscape or the patterns of animal prints.

Art and Design
