Black Cotton Malibu Duster Caftan

Mirth

From India

MIRTH was started in 2016 by sisters Erin and Katie who have always loved a good caftan. Launched after discovering heritage textiles over the course of several years of travel and exploration, they created a line of comfortable pieces. The handmade fabrics sourced from artisan communities bring a story to each piece. MIRTH caftans are meant to be worn on the beach, for a night out and everywhere in between. With soft texture and colors, it's an effortless look whether dressed up or while lounging around.

DESCRIPTION

this fabric is woven by hand in a special style of weaving called dindori, created only in a tiny town in central india. the yarns are spun by hand, including those spun with both black and ivory fibers, creating a subtle pattern in the fabric.

this style of hand spun and hand woven cotton is called khadi, a traditional indian fabric that gives a lofty and soft feel. we work with a co-op of weavers that provides training, childcare and ethical employment to village women who otherwise would have few alternatives, providing great opportunity to these women. this organization also operates a handloom school to further help sustain the dying craft of handloom weaving.
