Designed by textile artist Tammi Williams, she told us: "The Mixtape design was for a mini collection I made called 'Analog'. I had seen wax prints featuring original iPods and cell phones. When those designs were released, they were reflecting on technology and the future. I thought it would be fun to go in the other direction and make a collection that reflected retro artifacts from my childhood. I thought about the mix tapes I used to make for myself when I was a moody teenager and added labels to some of the tapes in the design. There's even a pencil in there for when the tape inevitably gets jammed in the cassette player because you played it so much. IYKYK."

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.
