Join our Zapenda Village!
Select this option and you will receive a personalized Zapenda Box that we curate especially for you. From the Motherland to your doorstep. You can choose to receive a box monthly or quarterly. Once you place your order, you will receive a form for each box where you can tell us more about your style and fit preferences. Our team will then whip up something special for just you. You can cancel your membership anytime.
The Zapenda Box is perfect for you if:
1. You have a hard time finding the right fit for your body.
Let's be real - many of us don't fit seamlessly into one size. Not to mention, our bodies are constantly changing. Every item in our Zapenda Box is made to order, which means we can make minor adjustments to each garment to guarantee better fit.
2. You are new to the world of African prints and don't know where to start.
So many options! From prints to styles, it can get overwhelming. We can help to curate prints and styles that work for you based on your style profile. Once we begin styling you, we learn more about your preferences and are better able to suggest items that you will love.
3. You wish to have more impact with your purchase.
A box purchase guarantees us revenue upfront that we can use to hire and pay our team of tailors in Congo. Our tailors earn on average 4x what other local tailors earn. This steady income goes directly to supporting their livelihoods - putting food on the table, sending kids to school, etc.
What's in the box?
Your Zapenda Box will feature a custom garment hand-made by our tailors and curated by our team of stylists. If you would like something other than clothing, you can indicate so on your form.
What is the turnaround time?
Please allow 3-4 weeks from production to delivery. All our products are made by REAL people and we value their well-being. Thank you for your patience and support.
