Maua Wellness, Zuri Zanzibar
The award-winning Maua Wellness spa, operated by Healing Earth, is set in the Indian ocean at the Zuri Zanzibar Resort. Situated on one of the idyllic islands that make up the Zanzibar archipelago, where ecology and sustainability are pivotal to the philosophy, Zuri's Maua Wellness signature treatments reflect the powerful natural plants, herbs and oils of the island.
Operating a small team means that the uniforms need to work flexibly to enable staff to execute different types of treatment as required, without restriction on movement. All staff members wear a long shirt style tunic in white, with light coffee coloured trousers. The tunics have two side slits that enable access to the pockets on the trousers. Sleeves are normally ¾ length, however can be rolled up and fixed with a button tab. In keeping with the environment-friendly ethos, one of the fabrics we used is a mixture of cotton and PET - a fibre created from recycled plastic bottles.
"Fashionizer worked closely with me to develop a uniform programme suitable to the conditions in Zanzibar. They offered their expertise in fabrics and styles to ensure our loose-fitting garments made in a variety of subtle colours, fit in with our bright environment and local staff. We have developed an excellent working relationship with Fashionizer and would highly recommend them as a uniform partner." - David Fernandez Fanego, General Manager Zuri Zanzibar
