About The C/Kaftan
A kaftan, also spelled "caftan," is a type of loose-fitting, long garment that is traditionally worn in North Africa and the Middle East. They are often made from lightweight fabrics such as cotton or silk, and can be decorated with embroidery or other embellishments. Kaftans can be worn by both men and women, and are typically ankle-length or floor-length.
The traditional kaftan is a simple, unstructured garment with long sleeves and a V-shaped neckline. However, modern kaftans can come in a wide variety of styles and designs, from casual, beach-friendly versions to formal, evening-wear styles. Some kaftans are even adapted to fashion in the west with different cut and patterns.
Kaftans have a long history, with the earliest known examples dating back to ancient Mesopotamia. They were worn by both men and women in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, and were often made from rich fabrics like silk and velvet. In many cultures, they were worn by royalty and nobility, and were considered a symbol of wealth and status.
Kaftans are very versatile, being able to be paired with different pants or skirts, worn casually with sandals or dressed up for an event with high heels. Also, it can work for different occasions, from a relaxing day at home to a fancy dinner.
