ABOUT ZR

ZR is a conceptual leather brand specializing in the creation of high-end leather accessories, jewellery and wearable pieces of art. It was born in 2013 with the main idea to work with leather in all its possibilities, forms and structures and to set no boundaries of the perspective of how a person can wear it.

Behind ZR stands the artist and real artisan Zora Romanska, who personally executes each piece of her collections with her own hands. Born in Bulgaria, lived in Italy, where she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, her influence has always been art - painting and sculpture. Nature, human mind and perception, shapes and different colors - everything is art and all take place in the creation of ZR pieces, whether they are jewellery, accessories or clothing. The philosophy of the brand aims to open the eye of the beholder to see and feel art and its beauty in everything that surrounds us. 

ZR collections are transformations, they are interpretations of nature - the lava, the rock, the sand, a constant search of new forms, silhouettes and shapes. All of the pieces are entirely unique, handcrafted, labor-intensive unique. No two are completely alike.

ABOUT THE PRODUCTS

The ZR accessories are all handcrafted out of selected high quality Italian and Spanish leather. They are all a creation of the artistic mind of the designer Zora Romanska and are conceived with the thought of people who want to stand out of the crowd. Being as unique as we all are they are not meant for people who don’t like to attract others’ attention. It’s a real wearable art that transmits designer’s energy and style and empowers you to underline yours. Very often multifunctional and some of them also unisex they are pretty easy to combine with different styles, with different moods. All you have to do is dare to ZR YOURSELF.

ABOUT ZORA ROMANSKA

Zora Romanska is a designer from Bulgaria. Growing up with the brush in her hand she started as a painter, after being a student in the School of Fine Arts in Sofia - Bulgaria, than student and afterwards teacher in the Accademia delle Belle Arti di Brescia - Italy to become a designer of real art-à-porter hand labored out of  leather.

“I have been panting all of my life – she says – but after all these years I started with some experiments to find out that  the leather is the material that helps me better express myself and my ideas as an artist. The leather gives a feeling of a real touch and naturalness and that’s how my jewellery and accessories complete every woman and man wearing them no matter their age and style. I want to experience without limiting myself in a specific style. I want to create wearable pieces of art and make them internationally recognizable.”
