About Us

Zu is a family business established in 2002 from the combination of two previously existing businesses in the centre of Southend-on-Sea; Robes de Ville, noted for quirky and imaginative children's wear and Saffron selling unique clothing, jewellery and footwear for adults. Having outgrown these premises the search was on for somewhere larger which could do justice to the merchandise on offer and eventually our current location was found.

As the two founding businesses were being merged and to establish a new identity to reflect the revised and refreshed outlook a new name was sought and after some deliberation and searching for something unique, simple and memorable and which lent itself to graphic representation, the name Zu was finally chosen.

Taking the best from both previous businesses with long established brands such as Oilily, Cakewalk and Birkenstock and adding new and exciting brands like UGG® Australia, Havaianas, Diesel and Scotch & Soda, to name a few, Zu have established a reputation for offering the best in trusted brands, comfort and service often imitated but seldom bettered.
