ZayZay appeals to those who value individuality, who want to express the joy of living in a relaxed and informal way. Our limited edition duvet covers are created so you can effortlessly transform your bed - no accessorizing required. No dozens of cushions! No throws! No fuss! To have options, switch ZayZay linens with the seasons or celebrate an occasion and dress for romance in the most seductive way. Simply have fun. This is luxury linen designed to look as good when the bed is made as when it’s not.
This hub of rejuvenation, your bed, your most private space, where you spend one third of your life, is a vital component for optimum health – in mind, body and soul. An injection of colour, an expressive brush stroke, can shift a mood, allow you to drift, to daydream, to de-stress. Yes, vivid colours have been proven to be exceptionally therapeutic in slowing the barrage of thoughts that keep you up at night. Our luxury linen is made from 100% Giza Egyptian cotton, the cream of the crop, so pure, it’s safe enough for infants, providing such an outstanding experience that after you sleep with ZayZay you can never go back to less.
Is there a mandate stipulating that ‘premium quality’ home décor and bed linen in particular can only be made in neutral palettes? In 550 shades of grey or non committal hues of sameness? One might get this impression judging from the pervasive beige blight that has proliferated our bedrooms for the past decade or more. ZayZay Living exists to counter this blandness with vibrant, exotic, playful and colourful collections, made from the most exquisite, custom woven fabric, ethically sourced, made with eco-integrity and made to last.

Et moi, Sharon? I am of many worlds
ZayZay Living reflects this fusion of cultures. I was born in Johannesburg, raised & educated in London, now living and working in Toronto. My African, European and Indian heritage have contributed to my sensibilities and skills as a designer and enriched my repertoire of sources to draw from with authenticity. My love of typography, of words, of colour, of texture find expression through ZayZay Living. Behind each design is a story, many created from my own paintings, inspired by an emotion, an experience, a place or moment. With or without knowing the story, ZayZay luxury linens are intended to be interpreted through your lens, in the way you want. Your bedroom, the light, the season will each cast a different dimension to the colours, making it your own personal experience. It makes you attentive to the shifting light in the course of a day. The beauty of the fabric within each fold. It makes you pause.
Invest in the Best with Peace of Mind
In this faster-than-ever paced world - with more distractions than any of us could have imagined – calming the circuits, winding down, retreating to your sanctuary, is a necessary escape. Your bed has never been more vital to your health and well-being than now. Relaxing first is the pre-requisite for attaining quality sleep. ZayZay Living is about healthier life choices – from soothing your soul, being kinder to your skin and the planet, too. We want you to sleep and dream with ZayZay, to wake up refreshed and inspired!
What is ZayZay Living?
Our collection of luxury linen is a fusion of the world’s finest Giza Egyptian cotton with vibrant artistic expression.
ZayZay luxury bed linen is made with 100% certified Giza Egyptian cotton. This cotton is the finest, longest-staple of all cottons, producing an extremely soft and supple weave. Its long-staple fibres are the hallmark of this exceptionally fine fabric and provide superior wicking properties for a deeper quality sleep. Of all the cottons cultivated around the world, only 0.5% are 100% certified Giza Egyptian cotton, making this luxuriant and durable cotton so highly prized. Truly one of nature’s rarest treasures.
Return Vibrancy to your Life
Feeling blah? Got “the blues” – except they’re grey (or beige, or worse, greige)? Colour and design have the power to restore energy and uplift the spirit. That’s why ZayZay offers an extraordinary palette of the uncommon, allowing you to express your individuality through designs you simply cannot find anywhere else. ZayZay dares to overthrow the tyranny of listless interior design so you can liberate yourself from uninspired “comfort zones” that have never reflected you or your dreams.
Integrity begins with a commitment to your beliefs, using the best materials and the finest craftsmanship to develop products that endure. We believe longevity is the ultimate in sustainability so we nurture business relationships where quality, eco-integrity and fair labour practices are our common bonds. Our team travelled the world, inspecting factories and meeting with manufacturers in a search for those who share the same values. We finally settled on a family-run textile business in Portugal with a generations-long legacy of excellence. Working together, we obtained certified audits of compliance by independent bodies at the highest international levels.
Because we use only 100% certified Giza Egyptian cotton, no softening agents or toxic chemical additives are needed, or used, in the production of any ZayZay bed linen. As a result, our linens are both kinder to your skin and gentler on the planet. Digital printing and water-based inks allow us to produce our exquisite linens using significantly less water and energy – thus leaving an exponentially smaller carbon footprint than traditionally produced linens.
Reconnect with that overlooked but essential one-third of your life by treating yourself to the vibrant tones, calming moods, and luxurious fabrics that long to encompass you while you sleep (or play).
Make it extraordinary. Make it ZayZay.
