Took a really long time to ship, past the expected date, but the kaftan is beautiful! Just know to give plenty of time! The fit is also fantastic. It's very roomy, as it should be, but the seams on the sides under the arms give it a wonderful shape. I'm very pleased.

The caftan is beautifully made. I am delighted. There were a few bumps along the way which Georgia went out of her way to address. Overall I am pleased.

About

Handmade Embroidered Luxury Kaftans

Welcome to Arabian Threads. I make traditional Arabian caftans reinterpreted with a contemporary twist. Our luxury kaftans are made from the finest quality silks, silk blends, cottons and linens and are artfully embroidered and embellished with striking design and pattern. Each piece takes on average three weeks to complete

We also stock jewelry and small homewares unique to the Middle East

As is custom here for all holidays and celebrations, women wear and buy gelabiya (caftans) in often very elaborate and intricate designs and I absolutely fell in love with them and the process of creating one of a kind pieces that no one else would have.
I have strived to incorporate the Australian laid back sensibility into these traditional gulf dresses, using only soft chiffon, cotton and silk to enable the wearer to feel at home in my designs either on the beach, at a friends BBQ or out for drinks or dinner.
