Who's Behind It?

Zib began in 2011 when – Inga Priedite and Irena Andrejeva from the Art Academy of Latvia decided to join their creative forces together in bringing to life their drawings and printing them on clothing. Having gone from strength to strength, the rapidly growing team is hugely talented and still firmly based in Riga, Latvia. They retain the vision and talent to bring art to everyday apparel.

The first supporters of ZIB* were friends and family who merrily and energetically got involved in the process. During the early years the range of products has evolved and increased, but they still reflect and embody their joy of colour and freedom. All ZIB* prints are based on their drawings and paintings, making each item unique and different in its color tone or paint drops on the fabric.

  1. Absolutely Ideal for Commuting & Spinning

    Review by Harry

    These pants are simply perfect for commuting around town to slip under leggings or jeans; the world has no clue you are wearing padded undies and you don't even remember you're wearing them.

    I've also been wearing the for my spinning classes and I actually now prefer them to wearing padded shorts which win my preference only for 3+ hour rides.

    I would recommend these over and over and over again.

  2. Happy wife.

    Review by Loving husband.

    Bought as a birthday present for my wife who now has a comfy bum and we can now ride twice as long. All thanks to Fran at Velovixen who assisted in the purchase. Top marks.

  3. Funky Pattern

    Review by Piglit

    Love these! Nice shape, great colours and pattern. Bit small for me but I know who to give them to!

  4. Just lovely!

    Review by Minkamonka

    Very nice item indeed. Well made. I haven't actually tested them out on the bike yet though but I have tried them on and I found them to be comfortable and flattering. Looking forward to giving them a road test soon!
