1960s Bright Yellow Cotton Embroidered Josefa Caftan
Josefa caftans are amazing pieces of art-to-wear. Each was hand made in Mexico in the late sixties to early seventies and were the epitome of hippie chic, both then and now. Looking like it could have been worn by Talitha Getty, this is an amazing and easy to wear piece that you can wear to the beach, during the day or as an evening piece. The design is based on a classic caftan silhouette that pairs a finely woven, brilliantly hand dyed cotton with with hand done embroidery work. The embroidery details the neckline and each cuff. I love how there is a little spray of flowers at the back of the neck and how each cuff has an unusual notch shape. Cut loose and easy, it just slips over the head and has a notched neckline for a bit of skin to peek through. Presents as excellent condition
Unlined and slips on to wear. The fabric has natural variations in it with some extremely light foxing marks here and there that I could not even capture so mentioned for accuracy only.
