The Zingara Story
Zingara’s Venice Bungalow
We know you get it. We know you have great style, good sense. You’re good to your kids, you like pets. And you’re a discriminating shopper who connects with the products you buy and wear from our Venice bungalow.
Zingara is Italian for gypsy…gypsy is bohemian…and bohemian is Venice Beach….the obvious place to base our gypsy caravan and offer you goods from here and around the world! We invite you to join our caravan, and discover with us. Uncover the authentic. Explore and wander!
We’ve been here since 2008, a global mercantile offering authentic, original clothing and goods. We share with you that passion for conscious living, and that’s why our designs and finds are handcrafted and Fair Trade. That means what we offer is local, whether it’s Los Angeles, Nepal, Mexico, Japan, or Minnesota. Our designers and artisans work in their communities, not in anonymous factories. They’re fairly compensated, and their earnings stay in their communities. The pride of their communities goes into their work and comes to you.
Our motto is – Style with a Conscience. We covered Conscience. About Style: We offer you extraordinary pieces reflecting your great taste. Mix Ulf Andersson’s vintage-inspired dresses with Rico Adair’s one-of-a-kind cashmere scarves, Maasai beaded bangles, and sexy clogs that you design. Soft, colorful brushed Nepali wool shawls. Ethereal silk scarves from India. Zapotec textile bags. Take a look at the sophisticated boho collection we’ve assembled for you. We can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with!
For kids – Zingara Bambini is an enchanted toy box. Fanciful ceramics from Mexico, sweaters and ponchos from South America, and those adorable finger puppets–all hand-knit in amazing detail. Clothing from India, twirly dresses, slippers from Mongolia, Swedish clogs and Japanese spinning lamps.
We hope our website is as welcoming as our store on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice. We know our customers, we know their kids and watch them grow up. They stop by to show us their new magic tricks, or grab some candy, cider or make s’mores in our back garden. We know the names of our neighborhood dogs – they love us (or is it the treats behind the counter?).
We look forward to getting to know you – your kids – your pets. Enter our virtual bungalow and join us for a cup of hot cider and enjoy the salty ocean air as you peruse our products. Just give us a shout if you have any questions or just want to hang out and chat.
Welcome. Come on in.
