Kayin Short Sleeve 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.

My daughter loves her "blue diamond" dress so much. It is literally her favorite thing to wear. She especially loves that she can match her brother in his pants and shirt.
My granddaughter loved the dress!
Beautiful dresses that are well-made of the softest organic cotton I have ever felt. They wash and hang-dry perfectly: soft and wrinkle-free. I am looking forward to purchasing more items from Ade + Ayo
Very happy with purchase
Super cute, high quality fabric, well made
