(Print Note: Our team in Kenya thought this was a cooked fish rather than a swimming fish, so most all of these are cut with the fish upside down!)

These textiles are a part of our 100% Made in Kenya collection and were printed in Kenya on Kenyan grown cotton. The print was designed by Lulu Kitololo.  A few words from Lulu: "I’m incredibly thrilled to see my work on fabric and for it to be such an intimate part of the lives of those who wear it. I’ve always wanted to explore my work on textiles and I’m excited to be doing this with a brand whose ethos and spirit is so aligned with mine."

Meet our production partner, SOKO Kenya! Based in Kikambala on the Kenyan coast, they are an ethical manufacturer that truly embraces a fair, kind and transparent work culture. In addition to paying above living wages, SOKO provides employees with paid leave and stipends for family emergencies, free pre-primary childcare for all employees with children from ages 2-4, daily mid-morning tea and midday lunch, and clear, outlined processes for job advancement. These values extend to the workspace itself, which is open, airy and bright. It’s truly a privilege to work with the SOKO team, and we invite you to learn more about the stitching process here!

When we say 100% Made in Kenya, we really mean it! Made from cotton grown in western Kenya and designed, printed and stitched outside of Nairobi, it doesn't get more local than this! We’re so proud to be part of an ecosystem supporting and advocating for Kenyan agriculture and manufacturing. Learn more about these fabrics are made here!

The ecosystem for rotary printed fabrics is complex and truly global. While it's rare to see a rotary printed textile produced in a closed-circuit, farm-to-shop supply chain, the fabrics we're producing are verifiably 100% made in Kenya. Not just traceable, but local. Not just identifiable, but ethical and accountable.

Our production impacts hundreds of smallholder farmers and their families each year. It impacts young Kenyan artists whose voices and work may now have a slightly bigger audience (and fan club:) ). It impacts the Kenyan textile manufacturing industry, which for years has been out-competed in the local market by imported fabrics. Finally, it impacts you, because you can know that your dress was made ethically, honestly, and with pride.

    Comfortable, professional fit!

    This is absolutely my favorite new shirt and favorite new print to wear to work. This style suits me very well; I wear a large usually but wear a medium so I get a sharp fit in the shoulders but have some relaxed room in the mid area. The geometric design feels more professional, but the personality of the fish and the vibrant colors lets me have my personality. I’m a loyal and years-long fan of Zuri dresses and shirts!

    Zuri is terrific!

    Do not hesitate to buy this shirt. The colours are beautiful, it's well made, and it has a great story. I've had "Belly Up" for about a month and worn it to work twice - it gets a lot of attention. This is my third purchase from Zuri. Communication, delivery time, care with packaging, craftsmanship - are all consistently excellent. Great work. Thank you Zuri.

    Great job

    I really love this blouse. It’s so easy to wear and very comfortable. The weight of the fabric and the colors are superb and the craftsmanship is outstanding. I especially like the styling that looks good on a larger woman.

    And the service of your company is amazing. I made a mistake when I was ordering and it was resolved immediately. I will definitely order again and recommend your company to others
