  • Insider Notes

    • "I drooled over this dress for MONTHS and finally bought it, and it’s even more beautiful than the picture. I absolutely LOVE IT." - Karen S., USA

      Dye Lab’s Cotonou Dress features a vibrant golden-yellow motif that’s printed by hand by local artisans using the age-old Batik technique. The relaxed shape is cut from breezy cotton and accented with a contrasting collar—made from handwoven Aso Oke fabric indigenous to the Yoruba people—in an understated ecru shade. The floor-sweeping hem adds a dose of glamour, ideal for summer weekends.
