So I rolled up the following:
- My first caftan I bought in Egypt in navy with red and white embroidery which apparently is a woman's wedding gown
- The black djellaba Rod and PHJ brought me from Morrocco
- The African one I had made for Chloe's wedding in Botswana
- My newest one from John Bartlett with a camo print of his late and wonderful three legged dog, Tiny Tim
Laure, one of the owners of The Webster informed me that they are called Boubou's in West Africa.
YAY a new name!
Now I have to find four new ones for next year. I'm not too worried, John and I are already talking new prints and there are a load of spots on 125th Street that can whip some up.
Now if only I could get one lines in cashmere for this frost freeze. Pringle of Scotland are you listening?
PS- Billy Farrell is totally responsible for coining 'caftan-mosphere' as you can see here:
