About Us

Our story


EKZO is inspired from the natural beauty found throughout remote beaches and exotic locations worldwide. These locations bring a sense of comfort, relaxation, and pleasure to those lucky enough to find them. It’s EKZO’s mission to encompass these core elements into a unique and all-natural clothing line.

Deeply rooted in African heritage, our fashion influence stems from diverse patterns and designs found in African fabrics and garments. EKZO combines these visually pleasing garments with simple, super soft, and fun to wear apparel for anyone who seeks comfortable, exotic living “anytime everywear”.

EKZO has been built upon three principles: simplicity, quality, and sustainability. Based in San Diego, our company provides premium products for a fraction of the cost by sourcing 100% natural fabrics from every corner of the globe. All our products are made for anyone seeking a comfortable, premium look without the traditional markups.

What does “Ekzo” mean?


EKZO comes from the word exotic—originating in or characteristic of a distant foreign country. Beauty is everywhere and in every culture worldwide. 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 contrasted colors, EKZO creates completely comfortable and unique products for all!

Simplicity

EKZO clothing is created to accentuate the beach culture and lifestyle we all adore. Based upon the “less is more” principle, our clothing heavily focuses on the quality of fabric and design. We emphasize versatility in our production, and strive to include designs and colors that will be suitable for any occasion.

Illustration of Sustainability

Sustainability

EKZO goes beyond the traditional methods of sourcing fabric. Instead of sourcing by quality and/or cost alone, we look for suppliers that make a positive influence in their employee’s lives and local communities. We strongly believe in helping those in need, and we will continue to do our part to ensure the health and well-being of all involved in the manufacturing of our products.

Quality

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.
