ABOUT US

BEHIND THE DESIGNS: ZEYNEP YURDERI

Designer and owner of ZEYZANI, Zeynep Yurderi will tell you that she doesn’t just design boots and shoes; she makes wearable art created to elevate any woman to the center of attention. "Zeyzani's are like all women – unique, sexy, and not dominated within the confines of any mold." 

The award-winning brand Zeyzani, founded in 2009, is anchored by its One-of-a-Kind collection, which is made from Suzani, hand-stitched silk, by artisans in Central Asia, with vibrantly colored motifs of tulips, paisleys, grapevines and other designs from ancient Greece and the Ottoman Empire. Because each pair is hand-stitched, no two are alike. Leather, Suede and other textiles round out the full Zeyzani collection, all made with the highest quality products offering comfort and durability year-round.

Zeyzani can be found in boutiques and stores across the US and Canada, as well as in Europe: Spain, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Cyprus, Sweden, and Turkey.

Yurderi has had some recent fanfare designing two pairs of custom boots for Dolly Parton; one was an above the knee stiletto in leather, which Parton wore during the TV Show, The Bacholerette. Other notable celebrities wearing Zeyzani: Joan Rivers, Wendy WIlliams, JWoWW & Snooki of “Jersey Shore,” Stella Parton, Renee Graziano of "Mob Wives," Katie Cazorla of “Nail Files” and Jeni Elizabeth, the Celebrity & TV Fashion Stylist.

Due to her success as a young designer and entrepreneur, Yurderi was crowned as one of the  “Super Women of the Year” 2011 by South Jersey Magazine. For more information on the designer Zeynep Yurderi, you can visit www.zeynepyurderi.com

FROM "Z":

From a very young age I've loved shoes! I think I was 7 when I got a pair of black suede ankle strap shoes with little heels and rainbow colored butterfly embroidery on the front, and that was it, I was in love!

I came to the USA in 1997 right after graduating a private high school in Izmir, Turkey. I first studied International Business and shortly after I went back to study Marketing and Management at the University of Washington, Business School in Seattle, WA.

Since college, I've only worked at large corporations at high levels and yet my obsession with heels grew with my career life.

Same obsession and love for heels have finally inspired me to hang up my business suits as a Director for a pharmaceutical marketing company and embark on this adventure with Zeyzani line in 2009.

The Zeyzani name is derived from my first name [Zeynep] and the fabric name suzani, hand-stitched silk by artisans in Uzbekistan, with vibrantly colored motifs of tulips, paisleys, pomegranates, grapevines and other designs from ancient Greece and the Ottoman Empire.

Some people love collecting paintings, others love collecting heels! But make no mistake, these are not your typical boots and shoes, these are one-of-a-kind hand embroidered Zeyzanis.

Each pair of Zeyzani is a work of art, unique and no two are alike; they all have their own distinctive pattern. In all regular line Zeyzanis, you will find an intentional imperfection or two, implying "Only God is perfect!"

I've had an amazing time so far helping women increase their self-awareness and discover their inner sensualist through my boots and am excited to continue to do so. I've always believed women are at their peak when they feel and look sexy. With that sexiness comes confidence, especially when it emanates from such beautiful hand crafted piece of art that is one-of-a-kind and only theirs: Zeyzani!

Thank you to all of those who believe in our brand and for making Zeyzani what it is today! I value your loyalty and truly appreciate your enthusiastic love for my designs!
