Kitenge x Ankara: When Thread Spools Align

  • Zuri 363 Bleecker Street New York, NY 10014 USA (map)

Like Ankara, Kitenge is a batik dying process introduced to Africa by way of colonial trade via the Dutch. Borrowed from Indonesian dying techniques, Ankara and Kitenge have become synonymous with African textiles. No two pieces are the same! When a print is made, many artisans will work to replicate it, and once it is gone, well, that is usually it for years to come.

When thread spools align in sustainable, eco friendly mission with Africa as our backdrops, we must answer the calling. We are thrilled to be welcomed in store, next Tuesday, for an evening of shopping, libations and networking.

We hope you will join us!
