ZeroByZawadi is an African yoga-inspired social enterprise. Our versatile unisex #TotoSayaris are hand-made with love in Kenya, using 100% cotton limited edition kanga fabric.
Since 2016, our founder Zawadi Nyong’o has been intentionally curating each kanga, based on their Kiswahili proverbs, colors, and patterns. We only make a few Toto Sayaris in each print, so if you see something that resonates with you, just keep in mind that the same print will never be available again. That’s the thing about kangas! They are only produced once, and we believe that they actually choose their owners. :-)
“Sayari” means “Universe” in Kiswahili - a reminder of life’s infinite and magical possibilities.
Check out the kanga prints and variations, and see what proverb resonates with you. We produce #TotoSayaris for kids aged between 1-12. (Note that the size 1-2yrs can even fit babies as young as 6 months old.)
Influenced by the 7 chakras and colours of nature, our #TotoSayaris are versatlie, super comfy, unique, and will each fit your watoto (children) for a span of about 2 years. They can be worn as a jumpsuit, harem pants, yoga pants, a bubble-dress/skirt, or shorts. They have elasticated leg bands which can be adjusted to the desired height. Pick either side to wear in front, and enjoy the different patterns on both sides. Best of all, there's a pocket cleverly tucked into the seam on either side! Yes, even for the little littles. And when it gets cold, you can layer them up with leggings underneath!

10% of our profits supports Mother Health International's a global maternal health organization that has a beautiful gentle birth center in Attiak village, Northern Uganda, and runs the Sister’s Keeper Doula Collective that serves pregnant women of color in Charlottesville, Virgnia.
