Three panel midi kaftan in peppermint with white design.
Working closely with Mexican artisans, former British VOGUE stylist Pippa Holt has created a range of kaftans using traditional techniques. Handwoven on a back strap loom, organic cotton is first spun into yarn and coloured with natural dyes. Blue and green tones are difficult to master and as such, very rare. The results can depend a lot on the temperature and how long the yarn is left to soak, and no two batches are the same. An extremely limited and cherished style in the collection, featuring white handwoven motifs. +
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.
