  • Insider Notes

    • Available in a variety of seasonal prints and colorways, Dye Lab’s Cotonou Dress is a summertime staple. This navy and white iteration is crafted in Lagos, Nigeria, by local artisans and hand-painted using the traditional Batik technique. Cut from breezy cotton, it’s finished with a red Aso Oke collar for an extra pop of personality. Styling-wise, a pair of chunky sandals and a slick of red lipstick will suffice.

      - Cotton
      - Produced locally in small batches, with the aim of preserving traditional dyeing methods indigenous to the Yoruba people
      - The unique technique inherent to the production process may result in subtle variations and different characteristics of the color and pattern
