Meet our production partner, SOKO Kenya! Based in Kikambala on the Kenyan coast, they are an ethical manufacturer that truly embraces a fair, kind and transparent work culture. In addition to paying above living wages, SOKO provides employees with paid leave and stipends for family emergencies, free pre-primary childcare for all employees with children from ages 2-4, daily mid-morning tea and midday lunch, and clear, outlined processes for job advancement. 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!
When we say 100% Made in Kenya, we really mean it! Made from cotton grown in western Kenya and designed, printed and stitched outside of Nairobi, it doesn't get more local than this! We’re so proud to be part of an ecosystem supporting and advocating for Kenyan agriculture and manufacturing. Learn more about these fabrics are made here!
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.

Never ever thought I would wear green, but Daybreak is WOW! The very subtle dark green was a pleasant surprise (with thanks to the wonderful Inja). And, of course, there is purple. LOVE this dress. Cue Barry Manilow every time: “Said it's daybreak, if you'll only believe, And let it shine, shine, shine All around the world.”FitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

I'd been ogling a number of Zuri dresses with standout graphics: Pizzazz, Whirligig, Fantasia. Gorgeous things I'd wear with my usual basic black. But went for Daybreak for my third purchase because I figured it might be nice with some linen basics I'd recently scored on ebay in shades of lilac, dark teal, and my favourite chartreuse-y greens. It's got none of these colours really (I'd misread what's actually a bright blue for teal and the purple is much pinker than I realised - and nicer as a consequence). But it is just as adaptable as I'd hoped - looks great with these other colours - and I couldn't be happier. My fave Zuri purchase is still Bluebell (just the best ever hot weather travel dress - which somehow manages to looks better the more you sweat in it). But Daybreak will be in frequent rotation both for work and more formal occasions through Queensland's less warm season. It has a lovely smooth hand and drape and the colours and design are quite elegant. Sort of a Japanese haori vibe. The fit is a little bit closer in the shoulders and upper arms than either Bluebell or my other previous purchase, Galaxy, which on me is a good thing.FitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

This dress wasn't on my radar at all until I saw some people post pictures of themselves wearing it on the FB group. It is different from other dresses I own - and I like it! I'm sure I will be wearing it a lotFitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2
