Our story
Here you can read more about founder Sharon and how Zonen 09 came to be. Many thanks to friend and storyteller Lien for putting our story into words.

Our mission
Zonen 09 wants to help you create the things you wish existed. With stylish prints on organic fabric and dapper sewing patterns that come with the clearest and most elaborate sewing tutorials out there.

We want to support you in leading a sustainable lifestyle by making it easy for you to create fashionable clothing in the most durable way possible. That is why we print our paper products on FSC certified paper and when possible on recycled paper. It is also the reason we choose to work with organic textile for our own fabric brand. Our printed designs are made with 100% organic, GOTS certified cotton. Our dyed collections are a combination of organic cotton and synthetic fibers. Here you can read more about GOTS, the Global Organic Textile Standard.

Awards
Zonen 09 won the Bryo Creative Highlight award 2014.

Bryo stands for Bright and Young and is a network of entrepreneurs. It is a project by the Flemish Chambre of Commerce that helps young, high potential individuals put their ideas into practice and grow their businesses.
