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!

Square Inch is a lightweight, breezy dress that I loved wearing on a special trip to Granada, Spain this past summer. The weather was blisteringly hot, but Square Inch kept me cool and comfy. Easy to wash by hand and quick to air dry makes it perfect for traveling. (I purchased this dress from another Zurista -- and I was so happy to add it to my sleeveless Zuri collection!) In case it's helpful: I usually wear size Small in the Zuris with sleeves, but I wear XS in sleeveless dresses.FitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

This is one of my most favorite dresses! So simple, so chic, so easy to wear. Just note that the print may not be even (the front of my dress looks like it has some dots missing) which initially bothered me a little bit.FitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

I am wearing my Square Inch as I type and I just want to show a photo of me out and about in the anything but "Square" Inch, another batik made in Ghana that I treasure for its handmade softness as well as style.
Here in Japan, it has been customary to cover one's arms, even in the sticky summer, but I am happy to go shopping in my sleeveless Zuri. Think I'll get one more dress to survive the lingering heat. Thank you, Zuri!FitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2
