What is a kaftan?
Kaftans originate in Middle Eastern and North African culture since the 14th century. Now, still considered a classically Moroccan garment, women’s kaftans are worn as an elegant and contemporary choice for women who love to dress modestly. The word kaftan itself refers to a full-length robe garment, usually and traditionally with long and fluted or exaggerated sleeve details. Crafted in anything from cotton to luxurious silk, women’s kaftans started to be seen within western high fashion in the 20th century and continued as one of the most popular Moroccan-style garments in ladies’ fashion.
