Single panel midi kaftan in orange / vanilla stripe with multi coloured 'people' design.
Pippa Holt’s kaftans are handmade by artisan weavers on a traditional backstrap loom – each piece takes one month to complete. No.148 is a ‘special edition’ kaftan due to the way its intricately woven. The bold orange and vanilla striped base, layered with multi-coloured people motifs and woven zig zag neckline, makes for pure artisanal luxury. The traditional woven Mexican ‘people’ design is a recurring theme; the symbols representing family, love and unity. +
Founded in 2016 by Pippa Holt, her eponymous line of kaftans celebrates a love of indigenous textiles, far-flung travel and beautiful, original holiday attire.
Collaborating with a group of artisans in a remote part of Mexico, together they have created a colourful collection for the beach or the city, each style exuding an understated luxury.
It takes each artisan one month to make a kaftan and, due to the way they are meticulously hand-crafted, no two are the same. Naturally dyed cotton thread is woven into cloth using a back-strap loom, an ancient weaving technique that has been used for generations.
