Zoggs is a team of Swazi Women producing a large variety of unique and functional handcraft with an original surface pattern design. We ZOGGS IT!!!
Zoggs was created by Zoe Vivian in 2000 with the prupose of applying her textile background in a unique and original way by developing the “Zoggs Dot”.
