The short kaftan is inspired by the Seventies, a sophisticated sundress and an elegant tunic with fringes at the same time. It can be worn on both sides, choosing to wear the v-neckline in front or on the back.
The kaftan is made in kikoi, the Tanzanian traditional fabric. An intertwining of over 3000 threads, hand dyed and hand-woven in one of the last artisanal workshops in Dar es Salaam. Wear it as you like it, with the love deserved by a piece that required so much time and care to be made.
Designed in Italy and made with passion in Tanzania by Ally. Kikoi fabric created by Mama Kishimbo and Cracode.
Choose it in the version with delicate and bright lemon yellow stripes on a white background.
