ZHURI is the first interactive print magazine setting the standards for creators and consumers of luxury African fashion, beauty and travel using augmented reality. By bridging the gap from offline to online, we’ve designed the perfect way to introduce African luxury to the global market. Directly defining – what it looks like, where it comes from and where to buy it. Through fundraisers like “A Seat at the table” ZHURI is building capital to publish its first issue later this year. If you like what they’re doing and want to help their vision come to life, feel free to contribute to their Kickstarter campaign.
