What does “Ekzo” mean?
EKZO comes from the word Exotic — originating in or characteristic of a distant foreign country. Beauty can be found in every part of the world. Whether it’t the culture, landscape, climate, or any other form, EKZO represents this beauty in every culture, as our mission and concepts appeal to a diverse audience on a global scale. Combining exotic design with elegant simplicity, EKZO creates exceptional garments for everyone to enjoy! Our inspiration for quality textiles and making a positive impact dates back to the early 1950’s. Alizee’s grandfather was the first textile distributor in The Congo to sell to all people of any race or color!
EKZO clothing is designed with everyday use in mind. We create clothing that is suitable from the beach to business, and everywhere in between. Our designs are original, unique, and are influenced by different exotic cultures throughout the world. We combine simplistic design with an exotic touch to create the perfect blend of elegance and fun.
We hand select 100% natural fibers from around the world to design clothing and accessories made to the highest standards of comfort and quality. EKZO’s mission is to inspire people to choose natural over synthetic by offering consumers a better quality product that is not harmful to the environment. The 100% natural fibers most commonly used in our products are linen, cotton, cashmere, hemp and wool.
EKZO takes quality very seriously. We bring only the best fabrics to our pieces to ensure maximum comfort, style, and longevity. We will never use spandex, polyester, or any other synthetic material as we feel these degrade the breathability and comfort, and their production can be harmful to the environment. All EKZO products are made from 100% natural fabrics.
Alizée is CEO and Lead Designer of EKZO. Originally from Brussels Belgium, Alizée now permanently resides in San Diego, California. Alizees motivation to create a positive impact in the world through her business runs in the family. In the early 1950’s, her grandfather was the first textile supplier in The Congo to sell to people of any race or color!
With degrees in fashion and graphic design, Alizée is truly following the “do what you love and never work a day in your life” motto. But don’t be fooled, if she is not surfing then you will most likely find her working (or maybe cooking delicious italian food).
