Helen Abson, who trained as an architect, is an Australian designer. She pursued architecture for five years; founded ZAB Design where she designed fabrics that exhibited a preoccupation for texture achieved through pattern and colour.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Zab ‘s bold, vibrant textiles offered an inexpensive alternative to the iconic Finnish products of Marimekko and Zab prospered, exporting to the United States and attracting international press coverage.
