belem caftan in indigo glass
the easiest to throw on caftan-slash-dress for daytime errands or a beach picnic. this lightweight cotton coverup is made of a special indigo fabric and has a flattering v neck and pleated detail at the sleeve.
hand block printed by a family of master printers in bagru, india using natural indigo dye and "dabu" mud printing method, this is a special fabric made with natural dye. mud is stamped to form the pattern and sawdust is applied to create a barrier before the fabric is dipped into a 12' deep indigo vat. once washed and dried in the sun, the indigo and imperfect print appear. the color of the blue varies a bit piece to piece, which is all part of the beauty.
