Modern Kaftan - Terracotta Silk
Our modern take on the kaftan is an empowering piece which we offer in many colour variations for you to choose from. It really does not require much effort from the wearer, it takes you from sunrise to sunset with ease and can create a feeling of strength and sovereignty when worn.
