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

Have you grabbed your piece of Escape yet? We are overwhelmed with the response from our fans to this collection.  We knew we had picked some awesome prints but we were stoked to be selling out of certain sizes less than a week after launching!! 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. And for now her heart is at home in Tauranga.  We met Kseniia through local magazines and proudly kitted her out for some clothing for her gorgeous blog, The Style Jungle for a feature she wrote on local places to work out. She's as bright and bubbly as the clothing we offer w...

Inspiring Human: Sarah Martelli

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

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.

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...

Good Vibes Only

Some people have the ability to feel and read the energy of others, sensitive beings who can’t help but be influenced strongly by the presence and the emotions those people around them. Do you sometimes feel drained after spending time with a friend or colleague who is very negative?  Or on the other hand do you feel uplifted by a friend who just gives off the most positive of energy? If so, then you probably are one of these people. Recognising this, having a strong awareness of our pers...

On the other side of fear

The following story is based on actual events, contains swear words and self reflection. If you're opposed to any of these things, we suggest you skip this read. As a disclaimer, we do not recommend attempting this track by yourself or without someone who has been before. It is not signposted and can only be completed at total low tide with the use of headlamps. Some people just give really good advice. Like our friend Francie - she said, "do scary sh!t".

Do scary sh*t

Meet Francie, Irish ex-pat living in Northland, lover of trying scary things and personal game changer. We've been connected with Francie on Instagram for quite some time, @franciechanges and what we love about her is her sheer determination towards achieving her goals. We had a chat with her recently and posed a few questions to discover where her strength comes from. We had a grand plan of making this a short snippet blog, but in the end we thought you should hear her story straight from her....
