The Mama Zi Story

Mama Zi's range of products depict and pay tribute to the Beauty that is Africa.

We mix everyday experiences with icons, motifs and photographs from past and present West Africa to produce original prints.  We present these ideas to you as special and beautiful products that are to be used, worn and carried with love everyday.  Many of our items make beautiful and unique gifts.

Mama Zi's signature product is the 100% silk scarf.  Mama Zi's silk scarves are works of Art.  Each scarf design tells it's own story and has been designed to be an exceptional statement piece. Mixing classic shapes with images and patterns inspired by Africa, the Mama Zi silk scarf is a sophisticated accessory.

Mama Zi was founded in 2009 by the husband and wife team of Bex and Emma Nwawudu. 

Many of the Mama Zi prints are inspired from photography that the founder of Mama Zi has taken whilst in Lagos & travelling throughout Nigeria. Emma, who has a BA Hon in Media Arts and a Master's in Photography has combined her love for Africa with passion for photography. A selection of her images are available to purchase as prints in a range of sizes and finishes.
