    Printed batik fabric

    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!

      My first batik shirt

      Won’t be my last batik shirt. Please bring in lots more. My shirt is a little darker than the pics online but I love it so much. A bit moody and cool at the same time. I decided to size down to same size as my dresses and I think this is my best shirt size. Had a few Large shirts but will now only buy Medium since they fit better.

      Elegant and versatile

      Initially I thought KINETIC might be too close to SHADOW DANCING as a batik shirt, but I sprang for it and am very glad I did. My shirt is darker and moodier than what the models show, it feels very organic, and it pulls a different kind of complement. This can go from casual to very dressy depending on what you put with it. Someone said. “That looks like a batik” —and of course I confirmed. It feels classic versus artsy, yet is artsy…. I am fond if it! Also goes well w silver hair:0). Enjoy!

      Another versatile shirt!

      I love the randomness of the print, the various shades of black, grey, and white. It's comfortable, easy to style, and can be seasonally adjusted. And, I just love Zuri as a company, a business, clothing.

      Much much darker than pictures

      I really wanted to like this shirt but the one I received was SO much darker. It felt gloomy rather than dramatic. I returned it. The picture shows it compared to another shirt I own which I like much better……
