Happy Labor Day! We're so thankful to everyone on our team, near and far, who work together to make Zuri what it is! 🌟💓🌈 #heyzuri #justonedress
Hang with us! We're open every weekend in San Francisco and New York, and we'd love you to pop in, try on, and catch up! 💓🌈🌟 (Speaking of dangling prepositions, did we mention we also do curbside pickup and drop off?) 🚙🚲 #justonedress #heyzuri
We're constantly amazed and inspired by the incredible women in our community, and today we'd love to spotlight Prof. Melissa Murray! ✨ She's a law professor specializing in constitutional law at the NYU School of Law, and she spends her spare time talking about the Supreme Court on the @strictscrutinypodcast, as well as various news shows (where she can often be seen rocking Zuri dresses like nobody's business)! Here she is in a recent appearance on MSNBC! 🌟 Thank you so much for the important work that you do, @profmmurray! #heyzuri #justonedress
Market days! 💓🌈 We've been sourcing fabrics for our masks in Nairobi today, and we're finding some beautiful prints! For the month of August, we decided to direct the proceeds of our mask sales to the @voterparticipationcenter, because we strongly believe in the importance of representation in our political systems, and that the first step to accomplishing that is through voting! 🌟 The Voter Participation Center has helped millions of people register to vote, and has focused specifically on outreach to women, BIPOC and young people. Thanks to your mask purchases this past month, we've now donated $5000 to support creating an inclusive and representative democracy. Let's keep it up!! #heyzuri #justonedress
In good company! 💓 This week, we'll be highlighting a few notable members of our Zuri family whose work we're truly proud to share! First up, meet Dr. Marcia Chatelain! 🌟 @drmchatelain is a history professor at Georgetown University, author, and public speaker. The author of the new book, "Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America", Marcia is a frequent commenter on race, justice, and food politics. (She also happens to look 💯✨ in Zuri dresses:) Let's all give her a big cheer--and then go buy her book!! (We'd love to hear from more of you! If you're working on something you'd love to share, please send us a DM!) #heyzuri
Happy Saturday!! We've got good music, new dresses, and our smize game is on point! 💓🌈✨ #justonedress #heyzuri
WOW!! 🌟 We're absolutely bursting with pride to see @hillaryclinton and sculptor Meredith Bergmann wearing our dresses as they unveiled Meredith's work, depicting the first-ever statue of real women in Central Park, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Marking the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, they worked together to win the vote for women, and their work continues now. This month, in order to help ensure that every eligible American can freely exercise their right to vote, we'll be donating the proceeds from your mask purchases to the @voterparticipationcenter, which has a really smart and effective approach to getting the Rising American Electorate (young people, people of color, and single women) registered and voting. ☑️ #heyzuri

Ever wonder who makes sure the print on your dress will look its best? Meet Stella, our chief pattern marker! She oversees the layout and marking of our dress pattern on each piece of fabric before it's cut, which requires a keen sense of efficiency and alignment, as well as an eye for beauty. 💓 The offcuts will all be used to make the patchwork totes we ship your orders in, and she factors that in as well to ensure that we're left with shapes that are useful, for a zero waste process. Thank you, Stella! ✨🌈 #heyzuri #justonedress
It's important to be well RED:) ❤️ At each of our shops, we have lending libraries stocked with some of our favorite books-- come drop by and borrow one! 📚
Do you display your grapefruits with gusto, or your peppers with panache? Do you want to give your radishes something to relish? Our raffia woven bowls add the perfect splash of color to any counter! So tell your fruits they're about to get a serious accommodation upgrade--we've got these beauties and many more heading your way!
Sneak peek--and looking vine! 🌿 We've got some really good dresses in the pipeline right now, including this perfectly balanced and not-too-sweet blue and green beauty, of which we've grown quite "frond" 💓 This fabric is 100% produced in Kenya--made from cotton grown in western Kenya, and then woven, designed and printed right here in Thika, we can't wait to share it (and more) with you soon! 🌈✨
Meet Bendetta, who brings joy to everything we do and make. She oversees each stage of our stiching process, from cutting and marking to plackets and pockets. Here, she's seen working with our hand-stitching team to ensure that the process of attaching our seamless cuffs goes...well...seamlessly:) Thank you, Bendetta, for making sure our frocks rock! 🌈💓✨
File this look under: "✨💓🎉🎯". We love the layered proportions of this dress/skirt (skress!) combo. Extra length? Yep! Print mixing? Don't mind if we do! (Note: while any A-line skirt will do, the dress under her dress is tied as a skirt! Want to learn how? Check out the tutorial in our story highlights 🌟🌈)
WOW! 🌟 It is so cool to see a fellow member of our Zuri community, @disability_visibility, featured on the cover of @britishvogue! In its September 2020 issue, Vogue U.K. is putting the spotlight on people effecting change across various fields and issues, from systemic racism to disability discrimination to gender equality, and activist Alice Wong is truly deserving of this recognition. By amplifying the voices, work, and perspectives of disabled people, her dedication to creating and sharing disability media and culture has made her a prominent and effective advocate for institutional change. We are so proud of you!
Wall flowers 🌺 (+ 🐟, 🥕,🎲, 🧷, 🐦 too) We spent today sourcing fabrics for our masks here in Nairobi! Thanks to you and your overwhelming support/love/need for these masks, we've now donated $15,930 to @eji_org in the last two months! Now, as the November elections grow nearer, we'd like to direct our focus toward voter registration. We'll be donating proceeds from your mask purchases this month to the @voterparticipationcenter, which has a really smart and effective approach to getting the Rising American Electorate (young people, people of color, and single women) registered and voting! Let's keep it up 💓🌟
We're often inspired by members of our Zuri community who are doing amazing things, and now is definitely one of those times! Shellie-Ann started her own farm in western Washington after moving to the US from Jamaica seven years ago. The outpouring of support has been so strong that she was recently able to get a new tractor to make the work lighter, and by coincidence (or not??) it matches her dress perfectly! 🌈🌟 Well done, @bunkhouseacres! We're "rooting" for you, in more ways than one:) 🧄🥕🥬
Happy Saturday! May your weekend be filled with joy, laughter, and well appointed Zuri ensembles 💓🌈🌟
We need your help!! First order of business: what do you think of pink 🌺💓🐙?? We're working on some VERY fun prints right now and we'd love to hear from you! What colors do you want to see more of? What colors would you wear as a shirt that you might not as a dress? Fill us in!!
Color inside the lines 💓🌈🎨
We love a good combo, so here's a dual-purpose self-care/care-instruction reminder: we're all more relaxed when we're able to hang out and get a little fresh air! 🌺🌈☀️ But if you need to blow off some steam, make sure you strike while the iron is hot!🌡️💨 (Too much??) Seriously, though, ironing is optional 💓
What's that? You're looking for a dress that's comfortable and free-flowing but still looks chic enough to wear out?🌈 ✔️ It should dazzle you with a periwinkle gingko leaf design yet still have a neutral ground that matches everything?💯✔️ Oh, and it should have pockets deep enough for your phone so that you don't have to carry a bag? 👛🚫✔️Well ladies YOU. ARE. WELCOME because our Biloba dress is here and it is the answer to all of these questions (and more!!)
Hot off the (rotary) press! Our first collection of 100% made in Kenya textiles are being stitched into dresses as we speak, and we can't wait to share them with you! This fabric was made from cotton grown in western Kenya, and then woven, designed and printed right here in Thika! 🌟 We are thrilled about the future of our local production, as well as the possibility for new textile and visual artist collaborations here in Kenya and beyond. Stay tuned, folks--things are about to get very exciting! 🎨🌈
This photo of these fabrics was taken at Marché HLM in Dakar, and this afternoon was an especially memorable one because it's the day we met Cheikhouna, the master dyer and artist who we would come to know and later work with to create the naturally dyed stitch-resist fabric for our Rising Tide dress. 🌈 It's also the day we had our first cup of attaya, a strong green tea brewed over time with mint and sugar, which we would look forward to each afternoon. 🍵 Later that evening, we saw Orchestra Baobab in concert, which might just be one of the best live music experiences on the planet. 🎵 So yes, I guess I'd say they all spark joy:) 🌟 Do you have a dress or print that reminds you of an especially happy moment? We'd love you to share some good memories below, and we can't wait to help create a few more 💓 (You can learn more about Cheikhouna and the stitch-resist technique on our website by clicking the link in our bio!)
Special delivery! Want to make your peppers pop and your scallions sing?🌶️ Do you display your avocados with bravado? 🥑 These gorgeous raffia woven bowls will add a delightful burst of color to any kitchen! 🌈 (Stay tuned: these beauties and more will be in-store and online this week!)
