Inspiring Human: Gina Buber

If you took the energy of a lightening bolt, added an Aussie accent and a dance studio to the mix you would get powerhouse and life enthusiast Gina Buber. From professional ballroom dancer to fitness guru, Gina spreads a life with passion to anyone she meets. We met Gina in Australia last year and it was clear from the beginning that at some stage we would collaborate together.  Gina's love of movement started at a very young age. Growing up in Sydney, she is the daughter of Ukrainian paren...

The Good Moves Collaboration: Zeenya and Pinc & Steel Cancer Rehabilitation

Ever since we started Zeenya Clothing, we've wanted our company to be more than kick-arse activewear. Not only did we want to ensure we do our best ethically when producing our clothing but we wanted a way to pay it forward and give back in other ways. Enter: The Good Moves Collaboration. A partnership opportunity where we dedicate one of the beautiful prints in our New Zealand Made Collection to a chosen charitable organisation, raising profile and funds for an epic cause. We are extr...

Colour Connection: The brightest small town in New Zealand

Situated between Rotorua and Taupo lies the tight knit farming community of Reporoa.  Surrounded by mud pools and geysers, rolling farmland and lots of cows, its also the turnaround point for the Taupo Ironman, and a place where everybody knows your name. As an online company we take note where around the world we send a lot of orders. Around 6 months ago we noticed the number of leggings being sent to Reporoa go through the roof. This is in many ways due to having one of our beautiful Amba...

Facing your fears head on

When the Zeenya Clothing crew put the call out for team members for the Spirited Women Adventure race I thought, oh yeah, sign me up! It sounded like a whole lot of fun! The adventure race is a mixture of running, mountain biking, kayaking and some extra mystery challenges thrown in. You compete the course as a team of four and navigate from the map provided, while clipping off a race card at all the check points along the way. There are no marshals out there except at transitions, no ...

Behind the Colour: How to name prints like a boss

Have you ever wondered where we come up with our print names from? Possibly for those who are new to Zeenya, they might not make a lot of sense. But we definitely have a lot of fun naming them.  You'll be aware that all our prints are limited edition right? So once they're gone, they're, well... gone. The names give us great memories to recall them by.  In each collection we will have between 5 and 9 new prints and with some fabric coming straight to New Zealand from Brazil, it me...

Sometimes life just shakes us up. It's not always pleasant but it does push us in new directions. Whangaparaoa local, dog lover and mother of three, Maree Leith is the proud owner of Go Run Girls, her company which inspires and motivates women to get running. Running hasn't always been her thing or been easy. But like all hard things in life they can lead us to our biggest moments of joy.  Maree's kick came at a time when she was working through becoming a Mum again after the birth of her y...

Inspiring Human: Zoe Ramage

Zoe Ramage is about to tackle her first ever marathon. That in itself is pretty damn inspirational. But it's not just the run we're here the talk about, there's been so much more to Zoe's running story that we think you will enjoy.   We know the runners out there who have done a marathon knows what it feels like as you edge towards that event date. Typically you set that goal with what you think will be plenty of time but as time has a habit of doing, the date tends to sneak up on us a...

Wild on Escape

Our Escape Core range is our second collection to be made right here in NZ.  Five new prints including a black and white (not so Zeenya-esque) mandala print.  If you are a true Zeenya fan you will want to take your felt pens and colou...

Inspiring Human: Kseniia Spodyneiko

Kseniia Spodyneiko is a true digital nomad. Growing up in Russia, born in Uzbekistan, she's lived in Belgium and USA as well. She now lives here in New Zealand, so the concept of home is more about where her heart is.

She's as bright and bubbly as the clothing we offer w...

Escape Collection - Plus Size Pre-Orders

We're all aware how happy wearing colour makes us. Putting on your favourite bright leggings really does cheer up these winter days.  A few people have told us that they would love to wear Zeenya, if only we had their size. So here's a bit of good news for any of you wanting to wear our leggings and tops in sizes bigger than what we currently stock. Please note that this is limited to our NZ Made core range and excludes running leggings and sport skirts.  Until Wednesday 18th of July y...

Inspiring Human: Penelope Strickland - SUP Paddler

What does 2018 hold for you and what have you got coming up?  2016 and 2017 were such big years for me in SUP. I got to travel the world, was part of the Starboard Dream Team, represented NZ in numerous events but not all of it was fun, more of an obligation. So, 2018 is all about doing new sports and just doing events that I know I will love and will be a challenge, which means my overseas winter base will be Hawaii! How did you get involved in the sport of Waka Ama?  I wanted to do t...

Inspiring Human: Hania Aitken - Obstacle Course Racer

Life continually presents us with choices. Some are ours to make, some are inherited by us from the people around us. Every choice gives us an opportunity for growth and we have the responsibility to ourselves to make the most of it.  Having initially connected online, we met Hania Aitken as part of a winning team at the Whai Ora Spirited Women Adventure Race. We think she has a pretty incredible attitude to life based on the choices she's made, so we thought we would take time to catch up ...

The Trap of the “WHEN I” mentality…

What are you holding yourself back from? What’s that thing you’ve said to yourself “I’ll do that WHEN…” We’ve all been there, unfortunately it’s something society has ingrained in us, this constant chasing of the next thing, of striving for something external that we don’t already have. Often it's at the expense of presence and gratitude for what we have right now. What if I told you that the “WHEN I” you’re waiting for was never going to come? As a health and transf...

How do we pick our prints?

Have you ever wondered how we pick the prints that we choose? One day we will be big enough to do full runs of custom prints, but for now we choose directly from the fabric mill. Here's the rules we live by 1. Choose separately from each other initially - Sarah loves so many prints and takes a long time to decide (classic Libra) and Chloe is more direct (most of the time). 2. We then come together and make some finalists3. Each person gets a save and a veto - if you love it y...

Sharing the love

Positive.  Mindful.  Energetic.  Not only is that how we describe Zeenya, but we think it's pretty fitting for the women who wear our clothing.

Thank you for supporting us as we have courageously taken the step to move our production to New Zealand. Your kind words and excitement over this news has been phenomenal to us. We are extremely grateful.  This past mo...

Proudly Made in New Zealand

What if we told you that your favourite activewear brand (that's us of course) was now even better? It's still super comfy, with unique prints and deliciously soft biodegradable fabric, but its now being made here in New Zealand. That's right. New Zealand Made. Pretty cool right?! We think so! It's made sense to us for a number of reasons to move our production here. The main reason is to improve the control we have over the production process. Brazil becomes very far away if items arr...
