Beaded Damask Caftan
This Beaded Damask Caftan is in a word, WOW! Striking and glamorously versatile, the gown’s subtle damask arabesques are lavishly embellished—at the split-front neckline and at the cuffs—with hand-stitched beaded appliqué, whose stunning leaf-and-flower motif is accented with silvery insets. This elegant lounging dress is styled with three-quarter sleeves and side slits. 100% cotton. Made in India. Sizes, S, M, L, XL.
Reminiscent of loomed and embroidered textiles in our Natural History Museum’s Indian subcontinent collection.
