Yunzo was founded by Jie Zhang in 2018 with the aim to disrupt conventional ways of thinking, also setting new standards for fashion and lifestyle.
Coming from Southwestern China and being a native of Yunnan, Jie as grown accustomed to diverse ethnic groups and varied artistic characteristics. Growing up with such rich culture and history has led her to become fascinated with people’s hidden stories and their art.
Having travelled around the small villages around her in Yunnan, she learnt that a lot of the traditional skills of craftsmanship is becoming endangered, as a result, many unique and exquisite art works are being lost. Driven to preserve these valuable traditions, Jie created Yunzo to help the local craftsman, not only to improve their livelihood, but also to keep the Chinese heritage at the forefront.
