Sabi Sand Caftan

Mirth

"Woven wind," as handloom cottons are sometimes called, and nothing is more true of this fabric. So fine, with tiny and delicate threads, that two layers is still a bit sheer, but it might be the softest and airiest fabric your skin has ever touched. The loose shape moves with you, as the fabric is so fine. 

It takes 1 day to weave 1 meter of this fabric as the threads are so thin and the border is woven by hand. In all, a weaver spends 6 days on just one caftan. It is woven in rural villages in West Bengal by skilled artisans who have family handlooms in their homes.

The ivory Sabi Sand fabric is woven on a jacquard loom with a traditional temple border in black. Slubs and occasional colored threads are common and normal.

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.
