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.

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!
We're so proud to be working with Edwina and her cooperative of batik dyers in Accra, Ghana, to make these prints! Learn more about these fabrics here!
In order to create a batik fabric, recycled wax is melted and applied to the fabric using a stamped pattern. Edwina carves each stamped design herself in foam, which is easier to repurpose and work with than wood. Together with several women in Accra, Ghana, Edwina and her team always create designs that play on both pattern and layered color in a truly original way. Since we began working together in 2018, we've produced over 40 unique textiles together, keeping them in continuous production since we started. We're so honored to share this collaboration with Edwina and her team!

I have about 10 Zuri dresses and this is one of my new favorites! The color is more of a burnt orange color and goes very well with earthy tones. I wore mine for Thanksgiving (I admit the pattern and color were making me hungry for pumpkin pie!) with grey acid washed jeans and olive green boots. The block print pattern is nicely done and the fabric is soft and a bit airier than some of the kitenge fabrics (which I also love).Was this helpful?

I’m obsessed with Zuri dresses, especially batiks, and this dress was a hit for me. It’s more of a muted burnt orange, a rust-like color, as opposed to the brighter color featured in the pictures. It’s a much warmer color than it appears online. It’s a great color for fall and perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday 😊 Plus!! The crowns are very Basquiat-like!Was this helpful?
