years ago, Les Zigouis had the chance to meet an audience very quickly, thanks to the
internet and the South Korean market. Passionate
about French quality and style, they were instrumental in helping us develop
our collections one after the other, year after year. The search of a
particular style has always dominated our work, regardless of trends, and we
stay strongly committed to responsible manufacturing practices, 100% made in
Since its creation in 2009, we have been very positively
surprised by the quick success of our brand and we have focused all our energy
and passion on creating unique models, developing and manufacturing them, as
well as on running our craft firm.

registered in South-Korea and this trademark registration covers Europe as

register in France the brand Les Zigouis by Barbara Berrada.
Again, in this beginning of 2016, Les Zigouis has been
registered in China too.
This means we are not free to use it as is.
Of course, we know these practices exist, that everyday
ill-intentioned people will register brand names internationally to extort the
real brand or to ask a licence fee in order to use it. That beats everything!
We stand against this system used by con artists and rather than
being discouraged, we wish to keep on creating challenging and unique fashion

among patrons and resellers.
We are confident about their good taste, their expectations of a
quality know-how and their love of a smart fashion.
Please be aware that we have absolutely no licence neither in
South Korea nor in China, and our products are only created, developed and
manufactured in France by Barbara Berrada. If you come across products labeled

More broadly, we want to take this opportunity to thank our
clients in France and abroad, our resellers, as well as all the people who have
helped us establish ourselves (printed media, bloggers), mainly through
articles. We sometimes fail to mention them for a lack of time but never fail
to be truly touched by them and their support!
