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.
- LLauraI recommend this productRated 5 stars2 months agoThis dress crept up on me
This dress didn't jump out at me at first compared to some of the other patterns but I'm glad I bought it. The colours are so rich and the little pop of blue really makes the pattern sing. Even my two year old son compliments me when I wear it -- he says it looks like "nighttime". This is my second Zuri dress after receiving the first one as a gift, and I've just ordered a third dress in one of the batiks!Was this helpful?
- CChantiniI recommend this productRated 5 stars4 months agoSuch a beautiful color combo and interesting pattern
To be honest, I’ve been pining for this dress to come out ever since I laid eyes on the fabric and again when it was shared on insta last year. Beautiful rich purple and a deep blackish green or greenish black - however you interpret - with a fabulous deep ocean blue outline - it’s true love. Wearing it right away and looking forward to traveling near and far sporting this beauty. Thank you Zuri!Was this helpful?
