About Hannah Zakari
If you want to find out a bit more about Hannah Zakari then you're in the right place!
Hannah Zakari is an independent boutique specialising in items which are designed or handmade by indie designers. It was founded and is owned by Rachael Griffiths.
We're proud of what we do and love supporting small business, creative individuals and cottage industries. Our passion for indie design means we are always excited about the latest thing to come into the shop and thrive on finding beautiful and interesting new designs for our customers.
We're always striving to do things a bit differently to the 'high street' and like to work in close collaboration with our designers to create products and a shopping experience which will delight our customers with details like hand-stamped packaging, artist's window displays and our sporadically published Zine.
Since opening our virtual doors in 2004, Hannah Zakari has represented work from over 180 independent designers and artists from the UK and abroad and has been featured in many magazines and newspapers including Vogue, Grazia, The Guardian, Your Cat and Tatler. We opened our gorgeous 'bricks and mortar' boutique in July 2010 in Edinburgh and in May 2013 we featured as one of Stylist Magazine's Top 50 UK independent boutiques.
People often ask for Hannah, but I'm afraid she's not a real person! I wanted the name of the business to reflect my love of Japan and it's culture. Hannah Zakari comes from the Japanese 花盛り [hanazakari], which translates as 'blossoming' or 'blooming'.
We hope you love what you find on our website as much as we do!
