While Zady means grandfather in Yiddish and prosperous in Arabic, it also is the name of an ecommerce site that is intent on melding quality products with social value. The website works solely with designers who produce items that are locally-sourced, sustainable, handmade, environmentally conscious or made in the USA.
The sleek website features gorgeous apparel for men and women in addition to lovely household items and gifts. For Zady, it’s well-crafted products that can be traced to their place of origin that do the trick – rather than fast and mass-produced fashion. The designer’s personal story and motivations are included with every item, providing transparency and more insight into what is sold.
As an added bonus, a contribution for every Zady purchase is made to The Bootstrap Project, a nonprofit that aids artisans in the developing world to launch micro-businesses selling their traditional craft products.
