The brand is inspired by the idea that yoga and fitness is meant to be healing and so must our clothing. In order to not restrict our minds we shall not restrict our bodies. Zaelie holds a founding purpose to be socially active, aware, and supportive of mental and physical health in a non restricting, non judgmental environment.
The collection comes together from a love for design, art, yoga, dance, and all that is active. Our clothing is handmade in Brooklyn,NY. Our pieces are comfortable, functional and fashionable. We hope to make you feel great at every size offering XS-3X.
