When designing Essentials, I usually have a person in mind that I'd like to give it to. For this one, it was my son Sven.
When you've got young children who are just learning how to put sentences together, you start to become aware of how often you use the word love. Saying "I LOVE PIZZA!" but then telling your 2-year old you love them too is a bit hard for them to understand - are they only as important to you as your pizza?
As funny as it sounds, it wasn't until this actually happened to me that I realized how important it was to tell others we love them. On a daily basis, I'll ask Sven "Did you know daddy loves you?" His response of "yeah I know" stayed the same until just a few days ago. We were driving home and his response was a bit different: "What does that mean? What is love?"
I explained to him that love means you care about someone very very much - they're on your mind in your heart.
I looked in the rearview mirror as I was telling him this. His response was one I'll never forget.
"I love you dad."
Now this isn't the first time he's said that to me, but it was the first time he said it knowing what it really meant. My heart was officially melting.
That's what this Essential is all about: It's helping to define what love is before reminding someone how much you care. For some of you, it's a conversation you've never had - that's a serious gift for someone who really needs to hear it.
For me, I've realized that it only was only after I defined what love is that it helped show Sven just how important he was to me. My hope for this Essential is that it'll bring about similar magic moments for you guys as well.

-We mill our super soft elastic using polyester made from recycled water bottles at Repreve®. Each ZOX takes roughly one 8oz water bottle out of our ecosystem and turns it into a little hug for your wrist - the perfect reminder to help you make it through your day.
-All ZOX include a laser engraved serial number on the tag for authenticity. You'll find a matching serial number engraved on the collectors card that's included.
-We believe kind words can change the world, which is why every elastic ZOX we make is reversible. On one side, you'll find beautiful art from artists all around the globe. On the other, you'll find a wonderful little written reminder. Wear the words on the inside when they're just for you, wear them on the outside when it's something you want to be reminded of each time you look down.
-Given the collectibility of ZOX, each piece we make is hand packed in a small, resealable bag made from recycled material. This bag keeps your favorite ZOX fresh when they're not being used and is helpful to keep them organized alongside their collector cards.
-Handmade with love
-Every order helps provide clean water to those in need through our partnership with the Thirst Project.

There's no set recommendation as to how often you should wash your ZOX. Just keep in mind that ZOX are made with fabric and is like any other piece of fabric clothing.

Our ZOXLOX Keychain converters are inspired by ingenuity from Zoxers in our own community. In our VIP group, members started posting pictures of clamps that turned their ZOX into keychains. Unfortunately, the clamps were 1-time use and would ruin their ZOX. So, we stepped in to create something amazing.
ZOXLOX are easy to use converters that will turn your ZOX Singles or Straps into the best keychains in the world. All you do is remove the screw, insert your ZOX wristband, and push the screw back in so the wristband is looped over it. Then, screw it back into place and just like that, your ZOX wristband is now a ZOX Keychain. And the best thing about it? You can easily swap your ZOX wristbands in and out to change your keychain any time you feel like it.
Every wristband made is a limited edition work of art for your wrists. ZOX are reversible with a design on one side and a positive message on the inside. Every ZOX is individually laser cut with a serial number to ensure authenticity.
