FAQs

Soooo like…..

  • 1. I just got my dress and it feels a bit stiff.  Will it soften over time?
  • Yes! Our dresses are made of African wax print fabric. When we buy the fabric, it often has a waxy outer-coating. This wax makes the fabric stiff and takes a few washes to soften up. Our dresses are all pre-washed, but after a few wears and washes at home, your dress will feel much softer and hang more naturally.  

    2. Are all Zuri dresses made of the same fabric?

    Nope! We select our fabrics based on two equally important criteria: 1) quality of the fabric; and 2) coolness of the print. Because we’re always looking for interesting prints on long-lasting fabrics, we cannot limit ourselves in terms of any one geographical origin or manufacturing tradition. The common “thread” in all of our fabrics is that each selection is high quality cotton, with dyes that will not run, and prints that are both interesting and beautiful. Try a few; we think you’ll love them all!

    3. Is it all 100% cotton?

    Yup.

    4. How do I wash my dress?

    In the washing machine! Wash with cold water, and hang to dry.

  • 5. Will the fabrics run in the wash?
  • Nope.  

  • 6. How often are new prints debuted on the site?
  • Check every week or two! We’re always doing small runs of at least a few new prints to keep things interesting.

  • 7. How long do the runs of each print typically last?
  • Generally, a few weeks. They’re limited runs so we suggest that if you like one, you buy it.
