Kayin Ruffle Dress


*This item is a pre-order. Anticipated ship date is late May 2022.

About the Print:

Our unique Kayin print is inspired by adire - an indigo-dyed cloth made in southwestern Nigeria by Yoruba women. When I traveled to Nigeria as a teen, I was particularly drawn to the adire fabrics I saw hanging in local markets. The striking designs drew me in, and I was even more amazed when I learned about the traditional dye process undergone to create these beautiful fabrics. The memories of seeing adire in the markets were with me as I worked with print designer Shadé Akanbi to design our Ade + Ayo take on adire. The Kayin collection pays homage to the traditional fabric, capturing the varying shades of indigo that emerge through the dyeing process and bringing the beauty of adire to play-ready clothing. We've named this print Kayin because it means "celebrated child" in Yoruba.

Kayin Ruffle Dress

Outstanding Quality!

Loved the stuffed elephant and the dress I purchased! Awesome customer service

Super soft

The dress is soft and well made. It’s for my new granddaughter who is due in June so can’t speak to fit. Was sent an email about the delay and really appreciated the communication

Lovely color, pattern

Soft cotton; beautiful pattern; vibrant blue color. Also ordered the yellow (Berbere) dress - love them both! Definitely recommend.

I want this for myself!

I think this is my favorite pattern (thus far). The blue is so sumptuous and it reminds me of the color of the Mediterranean Sea. I could see myself wearing a dress with this pattern the next time I am blessed to be in Antibe ; ) Seriously, though, it is such a beautiful fabric and the colors are vibrantly rich and the cut of the dress is perfect for our tiny diva. It's not too short, but not so long as to get in the way of her playing (she's a diva, but she's also a future gymnast I think) the fabric has washed well with no fading and although its bamboo, it doesn't wrinkle. In short, I truly do want a dress made of this fabric for myself! LOL
