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!

    Absolutely beautiful batik fabric with subtle color variations in the most pleasing and soothing tones of blue and teal. Medium weight, super soft fabric that drapes well. Wearing this dress puts me in a calm, mellow mood ~ I love everything about it! Also, Zuri dress pockets fit my phone, keys, and a small wallet ~ freeing me up from carrying a purse. Here I've paired this dress with my 1980s Sara Young glass and freshwater pearl necklaces. Thanks, Zuri, for another winner!

    one of my favorites

    I love this batik - I got it as a restock and I'm so pleased with it!

    Wore it at an academic conference - so much nicer than a suit..

    Shades of blue

    If blue is your favorite color this is the dress for you. A lovely set of overlapping triangles and shades of blue to blue green.

    Stunning Batik

    This is one of the prettiest batik fabrics I’ve ever seen! I love it SO much, but dinged a star because the fit of the dress is different and tighter in the upper arm than my many other Zuri in the same size and length. The colors are fresh and the fabric itself is lovely though- a handmade work of art! I’m really looking forward to see future batik dresses. Thy are so incredibly special.

    Thank you so much for this review!! We appreciate you taking the time to provide this feedback!
    I know you're not alone here! We've already made some construction corrections that should help with the issue on the shoulder and upper arm, and we've had fit models trying them on at random for each new print coming out, to ensure the issue is corrected :D
    Press Play really is such a beautiful batik, we're so happy to hear you love the vibrancy in color as much as we do :)
