Espiritu Embroidered Guatemalan Kaftan - Blue, Light Blue, Ivory
ABSOLUTELY STUNNING hand-woven caftan from the mountains of Guatemala.
Perfectly packable - this will be your new go-to for travel!
This style Guatemalan caftan was originally used in weddings and ceremonies. The detail of the embroidery is exquisite and the shape of the caftan is feminine and flattering.
In the words of our artisan partners: "It is an art that is, unfortunately, dying because the ladies are not wearing the ceremonial huipiles as much as they used to. Our weavers learned this art from their ancestors, so it is difficult to find someone who can weave and embroider in this style".
Colors: Ivory and shades of blue ranging from deep navy, to royal blue, to light blue - GORGEOUS colors!
Sizing: One size fits most. Traditional caftan style comfortably fits sizes between Small and Large. Feminine drape is universally flattering!
Materials: Hand-woven and dyed cotton
Guatemalan weavers are mainly women, who derive natural dyes for their threads from vegetables and minerals. They still use the Mayan back-strap loom along with traditional spinning and embroidery techniques.
