The Backstory of ZAF


Hello! My name is Nicole, the owner of Zala and Friends. I'm 21 years old, born in the Philippines before relocating to Australia when I was 3 years old. I was studying a Bachelor of Laws, with full intentions of being a lawyer, before fully committing to working for this business full time. Zala is a 3 year old yellow Labrador, that is full of life and loves to meet new friends (both human & dogs!)

I had the idea of starting Zala and Friends during the first lockdown in August 2020 and started operating in December, only 4 months later! It definitely wasn't what I had in mind in terms of a career, but it is hands down the best decision I've ever made in my life!

We hope you love our products as much as we love them! We have put a lot of thought and love in this brand that reflects who we are. Thank you for your ongoing support. 

Lots of love & puppy smooches, 

Nicole & Zala x
