D1011 Indigo Cabo Kaftan

Our Limited Edition Indigo Cabo Kaftan is made from repurposed Corte woven fabric (Cortes are the skirts Maya women wear). Cortes are made with a footloom and each is about -4.5 yards long. Each design is typical of their region, each yard takes 5-6 hours to weave. After their Cortes have been used, sometimes for 4-5 years, and they have weaved a new one, Maya women sell their Corte at the local artisan markets to be purchased and repurposed into tablecloths, curtains, or put to any other good used . Each corte is loomed using cotton thread that has been prepared with intricate Ikat designs using century old techniques that cannot be duplicated by machines.
