All of our kaftans are designed not from templates but from scratch. Our mission is to scour India for the finest fabrics, rich in color and complexity. Then we use local craftsmen in India, all women seamstresses to stich our kaftans by hand. One piece could take a woman two to three days to assemble. The results speak for themselves- beautifully crafted, individual works of art. Each pattern is limited to ten pieces. When the kaftans are brought to market here in the United States, a large impression is left behind in India. Since no middleman is used in production, individual women gain pride in ownership of the production platform and can help clothe and educate their own children, feed their families, and create your kaftan.
