Darjeeling Midi Kaftan Dress
Introducing the Darjeeling Chai Midi Kaftan Dress — a celebration of elegance inspired by the world of tea. This enchanting dress features a captivating pattern of vertical zigzags, reminiscent of the steep terraced hills of Darjeeling. Varying in sizes and adorned in natural dyes to create hues of classic black, earthy beige, and bold red, each zigzag mirrors the rich complexity found in a perfect cup of Darjeeling chai.
This exquisite garment is hand block printed with all natural dyes using a mud based resist printing method. The dyes are derived from natural substances like beet root, indigo, turmeric, and rose madder.
Jean Marie sourced this dress from a small village in India known for this very special mud block printing method. She found the best printers in India, who actually have been visited by the present King Charles of England himself.
