This very special limited edition piece is from A Perfect Nomad's partnership with THE HIGHLAND SUPPORT PROJECT in Guatemala. A non profit organisation supporting indigenous communities and preserving their heritage and ancient crafts.
Inspired by the Mayan culture and using only natural raw elements, the Essence is a statement making kaftan. Designed to be worn over bare skin or swimwear, barefoot on the beach or to a party with heels. Featuring heavy tassled details to the front and ultra low back.
The thread for this piece has been woven on a traditional foot loom, an ancient art and process that took artist Don Rudy 4 days to weave for each kaftan.
The fabric was naturally died using a mix of botanical plants to create this rich earthy hue. One of the main ingredients in the dye is the bark of the plantain tree.
Naturally plant dyed cotton
Handcrafted in Guatemala
Model is 5ft 9 and a size 8-10
