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!

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!

    Perfect as a shirt or styled as a light jacket.

    Paper Planes is as versatile as it gets... the fabric is substantial, but not heavy and the white background with light grey batik stripes is even easy to coordinate with many Zuri dresses... it's an ideal warm weather piece that can be worn in many ways - e.g. here with my Zuri Pizzazz.

    Flying High With Paper Planes

    I love this shirt. So versatile for a shirt, open or closed. A great spring shirt. I wore it for Passover Seder. Even the dog is flying high.

    great shirt

    I like Paper Planes. It is more subdued than the stand-out bright colors and designs that I usually buy, but that was my intention.

    Having several other shirts, I was aware of the fit. It is just right.

    Delivery to Australia this time was not exactly seamless (unlike the other things I have purchased over the years), although the package did arrive in reasonable time. I would recommend reviewing those arrangements.

    Customer service is impeccable.

    Stealth winner

    Though heavier weight than I expected, and simpler in appearance than the prints I usually choose, Paper Planes provides a cool, sophisticated look when pared with black or white slacks or capris. The cut is comfortable and relaxed, neither too big nor too small.
