These values extend to the workspace itself, which is open, airy and bright. It’s truly a privilege to work with the SOKO team, and we invite you to learn more about the stitching process here!
We're so proud to be working with Edwina and her cooperative of batik dyers in Accra, Ghana, to make these prints! Learn more about these fabrics here!
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!

This is a beautiful print. The gradations of the stripes and tones of plum and pink throughout the dress are so luxurious and lovely. It is vibrant yet not too busy of a print, since it’s just stripes. I find it a bit harder to wear some of the large scale prints (partly because of my height perhaps- I am 5’4”). This is easier and more comfortable for me to wear. It can be suitable for many different occasions. Try it out if you are tempted!FitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

My replacement Electric Slide showed up with the diagonal stripes and I do believe this is my new favorite Zuri! Perfectly sized, beautiful pattern, great feel. 5 stars! Even bigger stars to the wonderful Zuri team who communicated, found, and got this one out to me. I'm thrilled!FitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

The dress was LOVELY and the color is so beautiful. Unfortunately, it was cut slightly smaller than I'm used to and the stripes were vertical instead of diagonal and I returned. Luckily, this is Zuri, so the customer service has been excellent! Can't wait to order my next Zuri :)FitRated -1.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

I have been waiting for the weather to cool off enough where I live to wear (and write a review for) this dress. Electric Slide immediately attracted me with its dynamic purple hue and flattering bias stripes, and I even purchased glasses to go with it! Now that autumn is finally approaching, I can step out in this lovely plum hue. So can you, and your admirers may be amazed by the unique batik treatment and texture created by the talented Edwina and her team!FitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2
