Meet the Founder

I'm Caitlin, founder of Zeal Living. Originally from South Africa, I grew up surrounded by African innovation and creativity. I started Zeal Living as a way to connect you to Africa’s most incredible artisans, designers and makers.

Many of the items you'll find here were designed exclusively for us. Other items I personally hand selected for you, directly from African Markets. This way, you can be assured that every Cameroonian JuJu headdress, Swazi placemat, Rwandan basket, South African ring, and Tanzanian bracelet is authentic, beautiful, and of the finest quality. After meeting the people behind our brands and hearing their stories, I could not be more proud to introduce you to them and the incredible items they make.

Zeal Living is about more than just home goods and accessories - it is an invitation to make a meaningful impact in the lives of artisans and makers across Africa by bringing gorgeous home goods and jewelry into your life. We are so glad you are joining us on this journey!
