Team at Sasha

Woven by India's oldest certified fair-trade artisanal weaving cooperative in West Bengal, these textiles are a dream! Each fabric is a hand-loomed blend of cotton and linen. We chose this blend for two reasons: 1) to create subtle texture and movement within the weave; and (more practically) 2) so that your shirts and dresses will be super easy to wash and wear, as they'll be more wrinkle resistant, more durable, and drape a bit heavier when worn. (While the fabric was produced in India, the dresses were all proudly stitched in Kenya by our team.)

    Fabulous batik!

    This dress is so soft and flowy. The design is subtle and elegant. Zuri batiks are so wonderful and underappreciated. I live how Zuri works with such great fabric designers and talented sewing workshops to produce simple, elegant, interesting dresses. I love how this company's work ethic aligns with mine.

    Lovely and light

    This is a gorgeously cool dress for hot days. The pattern is subtle but striking and is a very natural gray that matches well with gray hair. ☺️ I love it with a Zuri patch belt or just free flowing. One of my favorites.

    Perfect summer duster!

    Love it! Light, lovely, elegant and eclectic. The perfect summer duster. Usually wear a L, but got this in XL so would be extra loose.

    Perfect for summer!

    I love this ikat dress, much thinner than the other Zuri dresses, perfect for the summer!
