1960s Josefa Vibrant Pink and Primary Color Cotton Caftan Dress
Each Josefa labeled piece was hand made in Mexico in the late sixties to early seventies. They made fabulous caftans that are amazing pieces of art-to-wear. They look and feel like it could have been worn by Talitha Getty or any of the other jet-set girls that really pushed the Bohemian movement forward in their day.
This one is an easy to wear piece that you can wear to the beach, all through a day of exploring or as an evening piece with a change of accessories. The design is based on a classic sleeved, caftan dress silhouette that pairs a finely woven, brilliantly hand dyed cotton with with hand stitched on applique work. I love the bright and happy colors of this one. It is a mix of primaries with a bright pink, yellow, green and blue worked into the design. It is cut to be slightly more fitted through the top and then flares out dramatically as it nears the hem. Each sleeve is cut straight and wide. Excellent condition
Unlined and slips on to wear. The fabric has natural variations in it and is hand dyed. I see one small smudge on the yellow at the side. Please review the shot after the label photo to see. Note that in person the colors are slightly more bright and true then how it photoed. I took a full front and back shot so you can see the shape laying flat. The loose cut will allow it to fit a full range of sizes
