Zobi, a garment production house based in Aughnacliffe, was among the finalists at the recent County Longford Enterprise Awards.
Owned by Aine and Ann O’Reilly, Zobi is a garment production house and a creative learning centre.
Ann graduated from the Grafton Academy and has been working in the Fashion Industry for over 30 years, with many Designers and Bespoke Wear customers. Aine has grown up working with Ann in the studio. She studied Product Design in the University of Limerick before joining Ann to set up Zobi.
Zobi manufactures clothing designed by Fashion and Textile designers and offers quick and reliable lead times, industry knowledge, cost effective methods and high quality finish. The designers that Zobi works with are mainly Irish based but Zobi has the capacity to also work with international designers. Based on their own land in the Longford countryside means that Zobi can build on to the current studio in order to scale up with order capacity and hiring more staff.
In order to continue to grow the business Zobi have recently developed a new website and will promote and sell Zobi women’s wear collection to the Irish market, abroad and online.
