Single panel children's kaftan in pink with pink design
Children's kaftan No.41 features a sublime yet simple pink on pink design. Naturally dyed using pigments from flowers and vegetables, the cotton thread is woven into cloth using a backstrap loom, an ancient weaving technique that has been used by generations in this community of weavers.
Pippa Holt's editorial background as a stylist at British Vogue, a degree in fashion design combined with her love of travel is very much evident in her collection. Growing up on the beaches of Australia, she was inspired by her grandmother's style of tropical dressing at her seaside holiday home on The Great Barrier Reef. It’s why, in part she decided to launch her eponymous range of kaftans which celebrates her love of indigenous textiles, far-flung travel and beautiful, original attire. While living in Houston, she discovered a group of artisans in a remote part of Mexico and decided to collaborate with them to create the Pippa Holt Kaftan collection. It takes one month to make each unique kaftan and, due to the way they are hand-crafted, no two are the same. Naturally dyed cotton thread is woven into cloth using a backstrap loom, an ancient weaving technique that has been used by generations in this community. The colours of the threads are dyed from natural processes using vegetables and flowers.
