avalove botanics: Flower Dyed Chiffon Short Caftan: Rose Petals
Each time I make a botanic it captures a mood, or rasa in Indian terminology. The weight of air, water, balance of petals on fabric, the clouds, wind, or sun, or the rise or phase of the moon, all affects the outcome and makes each piece its own statement in time, place, and movement. It's impossible to repeat the sentiment and more beautiful because of that.
This silk half caftan has been hand dyed with rose petals, painted with barks, and steamed with crystal elixirs. There's only one in the world like this.
The item may vary slightly from the photo. This item is one we sew out of chiffon silk and hand dye.
Very lightweight, this is a short cut.
Quick hand-wash with natural washing detergent (We like Mrs. Meyers soap) in cold water. Hang to Dry.
One size fits most. It is a shorter cut, and made for a smaller torso and a smaller sized person. XS/S
