I created Zobha while teaching yoga in Hong Kong where I lived with my husband and two children. I virtually lived in my yoga clothes but could never really find the perfect combination of fashion, elegance, and function in any of the fitness clothing lines. With my business background in apparel, I decided to stop saying “I wish there were” and do what moves me. Zobha was born.
Zobha is a Sanskrit word meaning “grace, beauty and brilliance,” in other words, everything I hoped the brand would be. I am proud to say, Zobha has brought these words to life both in our clothing designs and in our desire to give back to our community.
I grew up on the coast of Maine, the daughter of a painter and sculptor and was inspired at an early age by the beauty around me both in Maine and later in Asia. You’ll notice these strong influences in the Zobha products you see today from the rich colors to the simple, elegant designs.
At Zobha, it’s important to us to not only be the brand that creates beautiful and high-quality products, but one that builds community and philanthropy around meaningful causes. We know we are only as strong as the world around us. That’s why our performance gear is only as important as the world it performs in. Helping others. Giving back. Creating beautiful thoughtfully designed active wear. That is the grace of Zobha. And that’s what moves us.
