Adehye Short Sleeve Dress
About the Print:
The Adehye print is our take on kente cloth, a Ghanian woven textile made with strips of silk and cotton. Traditional kente weaving is done on a wooden loom and kente cloth was historically worn by royalty. There are hundreds of different types of kente patterns, each with its own name or meaning typically based on proverbs, historical events, important leads or plants. Kente has become an important symbol of African heritage and pride across the diaspora. We’ve named this print “Adehye,” meaning royalty in Twi (Ghanian language).
About the Style:
Style and comfort are a perfect match in our short sleeve dress, wonderful for everyday play. Snaps on the back of the dress make dressing a breeze, even for the squirmiest of toddlers. Made from organic cotton, this dress is comfortable, soft and safe for your toddler’s skin. The fabric and cut give room for your toddler to grow, staying stylish for even longer!

The dress is an unusual fit for the size. It is very wide, but shorter than many dresses of that same size in the United States. It definitely does not fit as expected and is not the usual size 4T.
I seen the Shark Tank episode and was impressed. Wanted to get my youngest grandchild a gift.
Love the color
The material is just as vibrant as the colors look on the website. The clothes are soft and appropriately sized. LOVE THEM!
My 21 month old granddaughter is obsessed with her dress and matching bow!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
Hi! I'm Temidayo, the mom behind Ade + Ayo. I created Ade + Ayo when I was pregnant with my son and I couldn't find children's products that would introduce him to African cultures while fitting into his everyday life. I wanted to change that so that my son, and all of our kids, can grow up with pride and respect for what Africa has to offer.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Ade + Ayo black-owned?
Yes, Ade + Ayo is owned by a Nigerian mom - so we’re proudly black- and woman-owned!
Is it cultural appropriation for my child to use Ade + Ayo products if we’re not African or of African descent?
Great question! I created Ade + Ayo to make beautiful African design more accessible to children. I hope to spark curiosity, love and respect for the people and cultures that inspire our products. From my perspective, it’s not cultural appropriation. When you receive your Ade + Ayo pieces, it’s important that your family interacts with these items from a place of celebration and respect for the cultures and people from whom they originate. You can read more about this on our main FAQ page!
