This bohemian summer kaftan can be worn as an oversized boho top or a festival caftan dress, as well as a simple loose fit lounge wear.
It is handmade from a traditional Indian cotton blend in the circle of the tribal women from India.
We handmade a few of the kaftans and they all are slightly different.
The sides of the kaftans are left open. So it can be worn as a poncho. If you want us to close the side seams for you to wear it as a dress - please type in: "closed side seams" in the 'notes to seller' and you will receive the kaftan with the closed side seams.
Right now we have only one pink version left in stock.

We made these dresses together with Kusumna.
She is one of the village women with whom we were living and working together this year in India.
Kusumna didn't know that she has such a talent for sewing until this project started. In just a few days we all discovered that the quality she sews and the dedication are just so superb that she became our number one student in the group. She is quiet and shy and doesn't waste time goofing around and chatting. She is very serious about becoming a great seamstress and tailor and once she has enough money - she will buy a sewing machine.

This dress is a part of the project glorka and Ammachi Labs have been working together since 2018, empowering women to become more independent, self-reliant and simply happier...
Ammachi Labs is a part of humanitarian organization 'Embracing The World' founded by Amma, Mata Amritanandamayi. Ammachi Labs have been offering training programs to local women from various rural villages around India for many years now. The work they do is just incredible.
In 2018 we partnered up with Ammachi Labs, and together we have been coming to the villages to teach women how to make clothes. After spending some time on learning and practicing we then co-create collections of beautiful bohemian dresses. This year's collection is called 'Bohemian India'.
