We are Shereef and Karim Bishay

Two brother immigrants from Egypt living in California for the past decade. We thought of the idea of Zomes in response to the recent uptick in California fires; we didn’t want to build anything that would burn!

We fell in love with Bioceramic Cement and its properties: Sturdy, light, earth-friendly, and incredibly resilient, and Zomes was born. Having been part of startups for the past 20 years, we were both suffering from “Startupitus” and didn’t want to build vaporware or promise that we would change the housing industry with this single app, etc., etc.

We want to build something beautiful and real that will outlast us and be there for our children and their children. We are so proud of what we’ve built with our team and are equally as excited to share it with you.

Since 2020 we've been lucky to have our factory in beautiful Petaluma, California. We love giving tours, and receiving visitors. So please don't hesitate to reach out.
