Intrinsic to the Megan Park brand is its connection to the artisans that create each piece. This kaftan is a testimony to this. Created in the desert of Kutch in Gujarat - a region bordering Pakistan in the far north west of India, this piece has been created purely by hand from start to finish. The organic cotton yarn has been firstly spun by hand before being hand woven on a wooden loom, tasseled and then embroidered with delicate mirrors- each stage employing traditional techniques that existed before the industrialization of the textile industry. Created within 1 family across 3 generations, the textile of this piece employed artisans who suffered greatly during the Covid lockdowns. It is a relationship that Megan hopes to maintain for seasons to come.
Perfect for the heat of summer, this easy kaftan can be worn to lunch, over a bikini or for a casual dinner out while on vacation. The cobalt blue melange coloration of this kaftan offsets the decorative ecru jacquard borders and embroidery. Structured through the shoulders and with a classic collar and front tab opening, there is a relaxed ease of fit through the body. Side seam splits at the hem show a little leg while walking. Bountiful tassels add a decorative finish to the hemline and tiny shining mirrors add a discreet luminesce to this piece while exuding a casual appeal. Ease to wear and care for this piece will is sure to become a mainstay of your summer vacation wardrobe.
