ZEN BY ZEN is a company that is about bringing the beauty of Africa into contemporary spaces. By providing subtle hints of African culture into work and living spaces, we can find away to remind ourselves of who we are and where we come from.
The African diaspora consists of the worldwide collection of communities descended from Africa. As we merge with different cultures and environments; our culture & our dialects can become hidden behind our front door. ‘ZEN BY ZEN’ believes that expression and representation of who we are no matter what part of the world we find ourselves keeps us connected.


Our Homecoming collection focuses on the word ‘welcome’ in various African dialects.

Our focus with this collection is to represent individual culture and language at the entrance of our homes. We at Zen by Zen believe that there is so much beauty in Africa and African language, we see language as much more than a device for communication. Language, hold’s irreplaceable cultural significance, ancestral memories, and heritage, it is unique knowledge and tradition.

Our doormats are simple reflections of our heritage through language and have been designed to help you create a personal entrance into your home. We currently feature Yoruba, Twi, Igbo, Urhobo, Swahili and Creole languages and our Homecoming range is ever growing.

All our doormats are made with 100% coconut coir and are engraved with black laser ink.
