ZigZagZurich collaborates with artists and designers, both established and new, on unique collections transformed into textiles under the direction of creative director Michele Rondelli. The new 2020 ZigZagZurich Shower Curtains Collection adds an exciting new roster of artists from around the globe. ZigZagZurich shower curtains are made of high quality heavy weight panama cotton printed with original artist works and sealed with a waterproof coating. Once printed, we then treat the cotton with a special acrylic coating, which seals the cotton making it waterproof and mold proof, yet still soft to touch like real panama cotton. Each curtain is handmade then in Italy - the shower rings are using the highest quality brass, all hand finished. So no more plastic shower curtains, plastic liners - you can have real cotton luxury in your bathroom without any of the fuss with unique artist works.

The shower curtain “Landscape” is an image of a forest in Utrecht. “Nature is a huge source of inspiration in my work. What I like about the idea of this image turned into an shower curtain is that it gives the feeling of condensation on the mirror after showering”. - Merijn Hos.
- Katja Sandström is a graphic designer and illustrator born and based in Stockholm. In 2014 she finished a bachelor in Visual Communication at Malmö University. The making of “Kite” shower curtain motif started while playing around with a previously made drawing. Usually some details of a finished piece bring her new imaginary lines in her mind, which become a long chain of images giving birth to each other. Like almost all her creations the lines flow went from simple to messy and then back to simple.

Karina has contributed artwork to album covers and layouts, exhibition spaces, magazines, and hotel murals. "My inspiration lies in the discovering life as a phenomena, and in the admiring an amazing Planet we live at. Admiring the very essential things, such as a pomegranate or a stone can inspire me to express that deep impression. With my works, I try to deliver a distant look on the fragments of Nature, therefore I draw only organic objects, landscapes and the Universe." - Karina Eibatova.

Her designs are a celebration of colour and freedom, with intricate detail that covers broad spectrums of interest. Her travels in Asia and Europe have inspired her work to mix cultures.
