To help protect the environment, our clothing factory partner in Kenya uses solar for 25% of their power, reducing CO2 emissions. Our partner is also 100% water independent, harvesting rainwater for all their water needs. We chose this 100% cotton, wax-printed fabric (Kitenge) because of its historical and cultural significance in Kenya and Africa. The double-faced fabric is printed in rich colors with a labor-intensive technique of applying wax resin before submerging the fabric in dye, creating a refined print. More Materials and Innovations

Celebrating Africa's rich histories and modern influence, this pleated shirtdress is handcrafted in Kenya from authentic kitenge (Dutch-wax-printed fabric). The double-faced fabric is printed in rich colors with a labor-intensive technique of applying wax resin before submerging the fabric in dye, creating a refined look. The dress is designed with a shirt-style bodice and a pleated flowy skirt that creates beautiful movement as you walk. The dress is in a flattering, minimal silhouette and comes with a belt and pockets. It fastens with dyed Indonesian mother-of-pearl buttons to finish off this elevated design.
Style this versatile, knee-length dress, belted, for a day at the office or unbelted for a relaxed brunch or evening event.
