This exquisite hand painted silk kaftan will definitely not allow you to get away without a comment or eight! Cottonsilk or pure silk batik to keep you cool during the hottest of summer days or the stuffiest of formal occasions! "Bronze Beauty"

Waxed by hand, then carefully colored over with only the highest quality German paints to ensure long lasting brightness in color. The silk is then dried, set with textile fixer, then boiled twice and ironed to ensure color steadfastness. After being boiled and ironed, it should only bleed in the wash very minimally for the first couple of times.

The fabric of this piece alone took a full seven days to finish making by hand because of the intricacy of the traditional tribal Dayak flowers on the front and back, then it was sewn as a rectangular kaftan and will be without a doubt the most comfortable piece of clothing you will ever own!



PICTURED HERE: Satin Silk Fabric



CHOOSE YOUR FABRIC:
Cotton-Silk - A cotton and silk blend. More durable than pure silk and maintains the smooth texture and bright shine.
Jacquard Silk - Sports an underlying weave giving the piece delicious depth and texture.
Satin Silk - Classic smooth and shiny silk!
Chiffon Silk - Elegantly light and sheer - the most delicate and fragile of all the silks.
Peace Silk - A hand woven, no-harm silk suitable for vegans. Has a soft, muted glow and shine.



There is no price difference for kaftans sized S - 3XL as the overall width of the fabric (45 inches) will remain the same.


After purchase, we will be sending you a list of measurements required so we can tailor this piece specifically to you :):)


Ships via 4-7 working day courier - else contact me if you would like to downgrade to $17 first class airmail (11-28 working days), and a personalized listing will be put up for you :)




OTHER INFORMATION:

To give your Silk Batik a long and happy life, please look after it carefully with these tips and hints and a bit of common sense:


- Do not machine wash or tumble dry.
- Use cold water rather than warm or hot.
- Silk is a natural fibre like hair, as such you may find that a little shampoo will be gentler and give your batik a lustrous, shiny glow as opposed to using harsh detergents.
- THOU SHALT NOT BLEACH!! EVER!!!



A Word on Color: We have tried our best to portray the colors of our items. Having said that, please do remember:

- monitor settings DO vary so do keep that in mind as you browse.
- We hand mix all colors which means while we can replicate approximate color, we can never replicate exact color except by fluke.
- Colors are temperamental thingies. Shades change with the weather, time of day, and temperature of the room. Some colors we create are seemingly never seen again! This is the beauty of handmade - having something no one else can ever have.
