The debut drop from Zatacoza is a cross-section of comfort, quality, and attention to detail. Proudly designed and manufactured in Toronto, Zatacoza’s influential (and mysterious) lead designer goes into detail about what makes the Saguaro range a breath of fresh desert air.
Fabric and Stitching
Our fabrics are the foundation of our products - for this drop we used the most durable fabrics and premium fleece we could get our hands on. The hoodies and crewnecks come in a robust 20oz 100% fleece which has been brushed on the inside for a cozy interior - you feel the quality upon first touch.
For the sweatpants we actually used a 16oz cotton-polyester brushed fleece, the reason being because we always put the function and sustainability first. You tend to wear sweatpants more often (particularly during lockdown!) so that's why we made them a little lighter to cater for that indoor / outdoor feeling. The polyester not only adds a little softness but is more stable and durable which means it will perform time and time again, wash after wash. All our sweats are garment dyed and washed so they are pre-shrunk and stay true to size. All styles also feature flatlock stitching which weaves in an extra thread to provide greater strength and durability.
Inclusivity is another key belief in everything we do so all our fits are unisex and inspired by a 90's silhouette. An exaggerated, slightly oversized fit but tailored just enough to feel clean and contemporary.
Supporting local is a pillar of the Zatacoza brand and is vitally important to us. Aside from this, we also firmly believe quality must come first and our partner factory here in Toronto has been in business for three generations and shares our belief in providing customers with the highest level of quality available. They also produce for the likes of OVO, Roots, Todd Synder, Polo Ralph Lauren, so we are in fairly good company.
The ColoursFor the Saguaro drop, the colours are inspired by our love of So-Cal and desert vibes - whether that's sunsets in Palm Springs or the sun rising at Burning Man - the colours evoke a sense of both calm and hedonism.
