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.

I love the heathered purple with pops of orange and so do my friends! The Zuri cut is ageless and likely will work for most.FitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2Was this helpful?

I can’t stop wearing this dress!!…and I own a lot of Zuris :) Something about the soft purples and pop of orange—it’s just irresistible! I have a softer complexion (soft autumn, here) and so I need a little less contrast in my patterns. This dress hits the sweet spot of being soft overall but with small bursts of brightness that make my day every time I wear it. I love it so much!!Was this helpful?

This is a lovely dress. The purple is slightly softer and dustier than it looks in the photo -- and it's just perfect. The colors sing together and I know I will love wearing this. I also really like knowing wh the designer is, and have already found and signed up for her Instagram page. These Zuri dresses, wow, they just make the whole day better.Was this helpful?
