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.

    Subtle with a glow

    At first glance a subtle muted print BUT the white & blue glow in the light in a really lovely way, very wearable!

    Great overshirt

    The black background of this dress makes it perfect for autumn layering with black leggings and T. The orange and several shades of green/teal pop against the black, too. Really like this “LBD”.

    Easy Breezy

    The green is what drew me to the print but I wasn't sure I was going to love it in person. Was a bit concerned it might look too much like a Hawaiian shirt... but I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived! The color of the palms is so vibrant - the blue really pops (honestly, I hadn't even noticed there was blue in it when I ordered!) I think this is a great print for casual wear with jeans.
