The Kaftan is an essential piece for the warmer days. This block printed kaftan is a statement piece with its layers of blue tones and light cotton fabric. This garment has been dyed using the natural plant dye known as indigo. Drawn from the indigo plant, the dye is distinctive in its colour, each shade slightly different and will age beautifully with time. An adjustable waist tie adds to the simplistic design. The light cotton fabric is perfect for the warm sunny days.
This fabric has been block printed by indian artisans who have been perfecting their craft for 10 generations. The block is carved by hand from Indian Rosewood creating an intricate design. Then the fabric is laid out on long tables and the printing process begins. The craftsman will dip the block in the natural indigo dye then stamp on the length of fabric, repeating this process until the entire length of fabric is covered. Local ingredients are used throughout the process, a beautiful sight to see the lengths of freshly printed fabrics lying out in the sun to dry.
