Itajime Silk Kaftan

240,00

Our classic kaftan;  breezy and light with a relaxed fit and crafted in the most beautiful silk. The ultimate in luxury lounging! This one size kaftan is effortless: wear it as a luxurious coverup, post sauna chilling, or style it more casually by wearing it over a white cami and jeans. Add heels and a statement necklace to really dress it up. The cross chest size is 68cm, 73cm at the hips. The length from the centre is 129cm, so it shows a little ankle.

The print stems from Shibori which is a 1300 year old tie dye technique developed in Japan. Itajime is one technique of shibori which uses pieces of wood clamped together around sections of folded fabric to resist the dye in particular shapes. Each three meter section of fabric is individually folded, clamped, tied and dyed; and this repeated several times to get layers of colours. It’s a time consuming and exacting technique with bold results. Any variations or irregularities are part of the design and inherent to the production process.
