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.

    I LOV THIS SHIRT!

    The cut of this shirt is a bit bigger in the upper arms and body than the dresses. So it’s easy to wear a long sleeved top under the shirt, for warmth and additional style options. I always get lots of compliments on it!

    The only thing it lacks are pockets - oh well!

    Belly Up

    I love the print and colors! Overall, I prefer wearing Zuri dresses because of the pockets, and I still love my shirt because it has the full long sleeve. The shirt is a lovely addition to my wardrobe.

    Love the Fish!

    What a fun and funky shirt! It's long enough to wear as a tunic or long jacket, and the upside-down fish adds to the charm of the whimsical pattern. Lightweight but substantial fabric makes it suitable for multiple-season wear, and the colors are quite pleasing, including turquoise, a corol red, off white, and deep teal. Another Zuri winner!

    Nothing fishy about it!

    I absolutely love this top! Now that I have found my actual size, I am having the best time with my Zuri pieces. This top is very roomy and looks great over a variety of skirts and pants.
