    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!

    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!

      Another one for bird lovers!

      I absolutely adore this charming, whimsical print of what appear to be African ostriches. Zuri batiks are always excellent quality, and this one does not disappoint! It's midweight cotton that holds its shape without being stiff. The first time I wore it, I received two compliments immediately!

      Love this dress!

      My first long version of a Zuri dress, and I love it…I think it will be good for winter—or at least for Fall- -to have the longer length.

      One of my favs

      I really like emusing. The fit is fantastic as usual. I get a lot of compliments on this print. A lot of people think they are ostriches, but from the name of the print I think they're emus, and it's always a fun conversation to have! This is a nice balance of neutral colors but a bolder, more simple print. I really love it.

      LOVE IT!

      The print is so fun! I tried the longer length, and it hits below the knee. Great for the cooler months or for wearing without leggings. The sleeves are just the right length. Not to short or too long or in the way of your arm movement. It's just perfect. I'm 5'10 250 lbs size 1XL shipping to Canada was a breeze. Thank you Zuri!
