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.

    Wear as a jacket

    I got this in a 3x instead of my regular 2x and it fits like a light jacket. I don’t mind, though. I wore it to chilly San Francisco for a week of graduation festivities at my daughter’s university and it was a great wear. I love all my Zuris and this is no different.

    Breathable and lightweight

    I really like the lightweight and breathable feel of Megabyte. With its airy fit and neutral palette and simple design, I will get a lot of wear out of this beauty.

    Just the dress I wanted

    Another beautiful dress in an amazing pattern - lighter fabric than some others but feels soft.

    Don’t sleep on this one!

    I love this dress. Super easy to dress up or down. Light, airy fabric, not as heavy as some. I nearly returned it at first, but I’m glad I changed my mind. Another Zuri win!

    A One-in-a-Million, Time Traveling Zuri

    Megabyte is one of those special pieces of clothing that is both spot-on au courant and artfully vintage, an added bonus for anyone who wants a versatile wardrobe item. My Great-Grandparents had decorative canvas pillows on their mohair sofa in the nineteen teens that very much resemble Megabyte, as did my twill dungarees in the 1960s and punk accessories (shoes, handbags, boots) in the eighties. The list could go on. I love having a dress that can be styled in a plethora of various looks from times far past to our current trends.
