Zulily Offers a Made-in-Kenya Line of Girls' Clothing
Kirkland-based children’s clothing designer Kate Quinn has teamed up with Zulily and Kenyan designer Siamanda Chege (beberavi.com) for With Love from Africa, a line of dresses, jumpsuits and separates for girls ages newborn to 5 years old, made by women in Kenya. “The prints are inspired by colors and textures etched in my memory from my last trip to Africa; sunsets, sky, grass fields after the monsoon,” Quinn says. This first collection (available at a 40 percent discount on Zulily.com December 2-4, and then at regular price at katequinnorganics.com) has already created more than 30 jobs in villages where the unemployment rate is as high as 40 percent. A portion of the proceeds will be given to the Patrick Chege Memorial Orphanage in Nakuru, Kenya, which provides care for children who have lost their families to HIV/AIDS.
