Posted by Gilles DE ATAIDE on
reines d'afrique, femmes noires ayant marquées l'histoire de l'Afrique
ZANERIH is a brand that wants to enhance the value of women, hence the name of our first collection "KNENTO" which means woman in Lari, Congolese dialect. 
For us, the woman symbolizes the origin of all things, all too often the woman is not given due consideration. We wanted to highlight the exploits and courage of some of them through this blog and this collection, to show that affirming their convictions is not a matter of genres, but just determination.
We are committed to making you more than beautiful, we are committed to making you unique.
