Original design of mama otter and Zab the traveling otter pup. #ZabtheTrotter
We picked sea otters as our mascot because they embody the cuddly yet strong love of a mother in the best Californian way. ;)
Mothers carry their babies close to their hearts, ride the wave of life with ease, nurture the babies until they can float on their own, and link arms with others so they don't drift away. This is the "PUREST LOVE!"
“I realized when you look at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.” - Mitch Albom
ZAB THE TRAVELING OTTER EXPLAINED!
WHY SEA OTTERS?
We're all about honoring the sacrificial and courageous love of mothers. We picked sea otters as our mascot because they are local Cali animals and they embody 'mama love' so well :)
WHAT DOES THE HASHTAG "ZabtheTrotter" MEAN?
Our mama otter has 2 pups: Zab & Lulu.
(Trivia: The name 'Zab' came from our founders Allen & Ayaka's daughter: Eli-ZAB-eth. And 'Lulu' from their last name.)
You can customize the otter pillows and take them on your daily adventures!
.... we call them the "traveling otters" a.k.a. "Trotter"!
Snap a photo of your otter in your favorite place and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #ZabtheTrotter #LulutheTrotter #EPAotter :)
We love it when you share with us how you see the world, how you spend your day, what excites you, where you live and visit, etc.! Our team here in East Palo Alto enjoy seeing where the otters travel after they leave our studio.
