The yarn used in the “Zero Carbon” pet clothing – the Cashmere Pure series, achieves “carbon neutral” by utilizing clean energy, extensively employing low-carbon materials, and offsetting unavoidable carbon emissions. This approach reduces the carbon footprint of pet clothing from the source.

Zorika, the founder of the sustainable pet fashion brand ZOZORIKA, shared her journey from earning a master's degree in ecology to crossing over into the realm of pet clothing design. Her path exemplifies how the philosophy of sustainable development serves as a bridge between scientific research and fashion.
