Origins

Each of our kimono-style Dusters tells a story about how it changed, from Kenya to Barcelona and now to you, where it will become part of the story you create. 

This is a one-of-a-kind Kimono-style jacket created as a celebration and a poem.

This wax fabric, called Ankara in West Africa and Kitenge in East and Central Africa, was bought on a trip through Kenya. The shop is locally-owned in Mombasa. High quality satin lining bought in Barcelona at one of the oldest fabric shops in the city.

This kimono silhouette lets you experience Japan while this wax fabric allows you to travel to Kenya through fashion.

Our Inspiration

Mountains, valleys, lakes, beaches, and city centers - From the Great Rift Valley to the Lake Region in the North, to the bustling city center of Nairobi to the dense inner world of the Kibera. From wandering the Old Town of Mombasa with lively street markets to the quiet respite on the Indian Ocean at Diani Beach. Kenya is beautiful, diverse, rich, and inspiring.

How to Style

Choose your own adventure! This piece can be formally, worn over a dress or tied as a dress, with heels and jewelry.  Or, it can be casual, worn loosely over jeans, tied at the waist.

Feeling extra casual? This can also be a robe or worn as a swimsuit cover up.

Sizing

If S, it will be an oversized jacket and longer. If L, it will fit more justly to you and be shorter.
