God has blessed me with the ability to follow what I enjoy. Zumi Collection is a company that was founded on the love of beautiful, colorful fabrics and uniquely styled clothing and my desire to find them and bring them to you! I am Lu Spaine and I own and operate Zumi Collection. I began this company in 1992 after being downsized from a major corporation. That was a very liberating experience. Since then I have had great fun selling at jazz and cultural events, and conferences around the country.
 
In 2001, I opened a shop in Des Moines near Drake University. This allowed me to expand the product line to include accessories, home décor, and musical instruments. All products originate from countries in Africa, Asia and South America. Many of the importers I work with contribute money back to the communities where the products are created. Please see the Cultural Connections page for more information. Please feel free to contact me at luspaine@zumi.com with any questions about the products on these pages or if there is an item I can find for you.
