The story of Zuya started in 1991, when Franci and Jana Zupanc, began manufacturing underwear under the Zuya brand name. These beginnings were humble. Starting out in their spare room barely big enough to house a cutting table, a couple of machines and fabric. In 2004 Franci and Jana were joined by their son Uros and were soon stretching out into every corner of their family home, until in 2007 the Zupanc family relocated production into the current premises in Mavcice; a small village at the foot of the Slovene Alps. By that time the company had grown to 15 employees. In their 25 years of activity, the bonds woven between the Zupanc family and their employees transcend ordinary working relationships. The company is a tight-knit community they like to call 'family Zuya'.
