Zid Zid Kids began with Moulay A. Essakalli and Julie Klear, a husband and wife design team that lives and works in Marrakech, Morocco with their two preschool children.

Julie Klear is an accomplished studio artist who has exhibited at various museums across the United States and has taught art for over 15 years. She translates all that experience as well as her love of travelling into creating unique Zid Zid Kids’ products.

Moulay A. Essakalli has a background in graphic design and his international experience in a number of projects around the world has allowed him to gather these unique skills in bringing the vision of Zid Zid Kids to life.

Together, Julie and Moulay have succeeded in creating products for children that are not only unique but fresh and vibrant and giving kids around the world a taste of life in another part of the world!

The Zid Zid Kids product line is an exceptionally creative blend of the artist’s hand, children’s fresh energy paired with the ancient colors and traditions of a cultural destination, Morocco. Old and new artistic influences merge with a simple yet distinctive range of materials to create the extraordinary Zid Zid Kids range.

Handmade in Marrakech
Zid Zid Kids is 100% committed to Morocco for its inspiration and as its supplier and manufacturing centre. Every Zid Zid Kids product is designed and produced in Marrakech by Moroccan artisans using a combination of thousand-year-old traditions and modern day techniques.

Dedicated to Fair Trade
Zid Zid Kids co-founders, Julie Klear and Moulay A. Essakalli, are dedicated to working and supporting their local team of artisans, staff and vendors. Zid Zid Kids is proud to be recognised as leading Artisans of the Kingdom of Morocco and for excellence in quality and workplace standards by the American Chamber of Commerce in Morocco.

Respect of the Environment
Zid Zid Kids is 100% responsible to the environment and fair trade. Zid Zid Kids uses only chemical-free, all natural cotton fabrics, recycled cotton, and fabric remnants from Europe.

Family Centric
Zid Zid Kids is 100% devoted to kids and their families. Klear and Essakalli are themselves raising two young children and are always mindful to create products that make life not only more fun but easier for kids and their parents.

The Modern Child Committee in Florida recently acknowledged them for creating “contemporary, functional products that address and solve challenges” of daily life. For example, the new vinyl poof serves as seating that looks just right in a child’s room or a living room and can be a plaything that is easy to clean too.
