Sarah Short Cotton Indigo Kaftan

Sale price$195.00

Named for one of Pax Philomena's greatest friends, the Sarah mini dress/short kaftan features a traditional but at the same time bold, contemporary floral design block printed by hand on fine Indian cotton. This unique fabric is created through the ancient dabu method of block printing. In this method fabric begins as white, then a patterned block is dipped in mud and stamped onto the fabric. Next the entire piece is dipped in indigo dye, portions where the mud has been applied will resist color penetration leaving the floral design intact. Pieces are then washed several times to remove excess dyes and mud. 

100% lightweight cotton voile

Machine wash cold delicate in a lingerie bag to protect tassels or hand wash cold. Hang dry.

Length 32"

*This fabric is block printed by hand creating subtle variations in the pattern.  Each piece is a unique work of art worthy of honor and celebration.

Please Be Advised: Washing this garment before wearing is recommended in order to prevent indigo dye from rubbing/transferring.
