Zid Zid Kids

We love finding really special pieces for children and have found that the best designs appeal just as much to grown-ups as kids. Zid Zid is one of those really wonderful partnerships that is good all the way through. After moving to Morocco, Julie Klear and her husband were inspired by their new home and all its exotic scenery and possibilities. They embarked on a new business venture, creating handmade toys and products for kids with a distinctly modern twist. We love them because not only do they make beautiful toys, they believe in fair trade, are environmentally responsible, and very conscious of safety. All Zid Zid products are handmade in Morocco by artists who support their families with their wages.
