Rosewood Kaftan from Kashmir with Ari Embroidered Flowers and Paisleys
Kashmiri kaftans make for a quirky yet classic fashion statement. These long, loose, flowing gowns are superbly comfortable and ultra-feminine, as well as a good alternative to the traditional evening gown. This one is a pure silk number that would just shy of sweeping the floor as you walk, with the sleeves reaching below the elbows such as to leave bare a seductive proportion of skin at the forearm. The low neckline and the pleats that course down the length of this dress are not the only aspects that make it so feminine - the ariwork dominating the field plays an especial role.
Endemic to the valley, the instantly recognisable ari embroidery is the very picture of all that is Kashmiri - colourful, natural, and alluring, as well as exhibiting unmatchable precision of workmanship. Zoom in on the elegant tendrils and the imitations of local flowers hanging from them, and imagine the degree of skill and labour that must have gone into producing that inimitable finish. The rich wine red of the foundation is set off by the signature shimmer of pure homegrown silk, which has been sourced from the harsh climes of the higher altitudes where this kaftan has been handpicked from.
