The place to find colourful, comfortable suede and leather ladies' footwear that is just that little bit unusual!

Zinnia, as all you gardening buffs will know, is the name of a flower, and it's one that we rather like. Being the old romantics we are, we believe the giving and receiving of flowers - and other gifts - is a good thing. Colour and uniqueness are what we are about; Zinnia brings you fabulous footwear, gorgeous gifts and precious pressies to treasure - mostly designed here in the UK and made exclusively for us in Egypt, athough we are starting to introduce very special shoes and boots from Turkey, Spain and Portugal into the mix, as well as a few other fun accessories that catch our attention. Our standard range includes:

Ethically traded suede and leather shoes and boots made from the softest suede and leather
Suede and leather handbags to match your shoes
Hats, gloves and belts to complement your outfits
Traditional Fair Trade Egyptian cotton scarves
Soft English leather purses & wallets in lovely, very original colours and designs
Bloomin' Beautiful Brollies featuring flowers, butterflies, cats, dogs & horses, tiffany dragonflies, cityscapes, paintings by Van Gogh or Monet... - and some gorgeously cute sturdy chidren's umbrellas too
Fun, floaty scarves and wraps in fabulous colours and designs
A variety of Egyptian silver jewellery and glassware, as well as other individual treasures to give, to receive or just to keep!

Because we make our own Zinnia shoes, boots, handbags and belts from the same high quality kidskin and beef leather using the same shades of colour, we give you the opportunity to mix and match your boots with your belts, your shoes with your handbags...

As a long-footed family business, we're also aware that many people cannot find shoes to fit feet that are out of the 'normal' size range - so nearly all our designs are available from a size 36 (UK 3) to a size 44 (UK10), and some are even in a 35 (UK 2) or a 45 (UK 11). We also aim to accommodate common 'problems' such as bunions, high insteps and narrow heels by offering a range of shoes that takes all these variations into account. We also use a memory foam inner lining under all our leather-lined footbeds, to give extra comfort.

We offer high quality products made from natural materials at a competitive price.

The materials used are, on the whole, not heavily processed and local textile manufacturing has negligible effect on the environment. Some of the skills employed in making scarves bags and footwear go back centuries. When it comes to taste and style Zinnia acts as a bridge between European markets and the Egyptian artisans and manufacturers. We tell them what people here like, and they adapt local materials, well established production processes and ancient crafts to produce their own unique blend of the two.

Zinnia adopts ethical trading principles in dealing with its Egyptian suppliers. This is what we do:

We work with manufacturers who employ an adult workforce, work in a healthy environment and pay fair wages.
We buy our own leather from reputable tanners in Egypt to ensure high quality of material and manufacturing processes.
We pay for our products up front in local currency so that our suppliers are not at the mercy of currency fluctuations.

Just because we conduct our business through a website, please don't feel that you cannot talk to us. We take pleasure in meeting and talking to people, so please feel free to email, ring or write to us with your comments: only by receiving your feedback we can learn what we are doing right and what we need to do better and that would in the long term help us both. So why not join our mailing list?

Happy shopping!
