Over the years, the ‘kaftan’ has become a catchall term in fashion for any loose-fitting robe or tunic piece.
Despite the kaftan being around for hundreds of years, it was not until the 1950s and early 1960s that this style of dress began appearing in high fashion when it was adapted by French couturiers—including Christian Dior and Balenciaga.
Thanks to these brands and personalities like Goldie Hawn, Sarah Jessica-Parker, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Hillary Clinton, Rihanna – the ever flowy robe has become a mainstream staple for anyone looking for comfort, style, grace and glamour all rolled in one.
At Bamboo Bleu, we use art inspired digital prints on Japanese silk to create the softest and lightest kaftans that not only looks great but feels great on your skin. We also use Bamboo Jersey fabrics which is breatheable and lightweight for some of our kaftan designs. Here are some pics of beautiful clients adorning their Bamboo Bleu kaftans.
