These textiles are a part of our 100% Made in Kenya collection and were printed in Kenya on Kenyan grown cotton. The print was designed by Lulu Kitololo. A few words from Lulu: "I’m incredibly thrilled to see my work on fabric and for it to be such an intimate part of the lives of those who wear it. I’ve always wanted to explore my work on textiles and I’m excited to be doing this with a brand whose ethos and spirit is so aligned with mine."

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.

Love the beautiful print and soft fabric. The XL fit well everywhere but the arms and shoulders, which were far too right. I've seen this comment in other reviews and hope you're reassessing the fit in the larger sizes. The body of the dress is perfect -- it's just the arms and shoulders!Was this helpful?

I agree this one is a hidden gem that grew on me. This is my…well maybe I should not say how many Zuri dresses I own, LOL. However, I had forced myself to take a break. However this simple pattern kept calling me ( literally it kept showing up in my feed). I took the plunge and like always- Zuri did not disappoint. The red is beautiful and the flower pattern is so intricate. Thanks again Zuri!Was this helpful?

Although it doesn’t have the big POW! factor that some of the splashier designs have, this dress has a more subtle charm that kind of sneaks up on you. The red color is honest and clear and a little bit sassy, and the repeating pattern of the little juniper plants somehow inspires cheer and hope. Juniper has already ensconced itself firmly in my heart. In fact, come to think of it, this dress will be a perfect dress for Valentine’s Day. I am honored to write the first review of this beguiling dress.Was this helpful?
