EKZO comes from the word Exotic - " Originating in or characteristic of a distant foreign country. "
We specialize in creating unique, comfortable, and premium quality products all from 100% natural fibers. Our clothing and accessories are inspired by the sheer beauty of the many coastlines found around the world and embrace the lifestyle that accompanies them. We encourage you to adventure and explore while wearing our products. They are durable, comfortable and made to be worn “Anytime EveryWEAR”.
Our attention to detail when sourcing textiles is what truly makes the difference. We find textiles from all over the world and currently have products made in Japan, Tunisia, Kenya, Nepal and other exotic locations both near and far.
In addition to our sustainability initiatives, we also look to make an impact in the local communities of which we find our fabrics. We always choose small local suppliers over large manufacturers, we hold bi-annual sales that donate proceeds to the underprivileged, and we take pride in knowing that our efforts continue to make a positive impact for those in need.
- behind the brand -
Alizee Accomando was born and raised in Brussels, Belgium before moving to San Diego, CA in 2010. At an early age she fell in love with all forms of artistic expression, and her pursuit of relentless creativity has led her to receive a BA in Fashion Design alongside her Masters in Graphic Design. Alizée's 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.
Alizee’s lineage is very exotic tracing back from the Congo to Egypt, Greece and Turkey. This diversity has led to a life inspired by travel and a true appreciation of experiencing different cultures. Alizee draws inspiration from these experiences and incorporates that inspiration directly into the aesthetic and design elements of EKZO.
