1960s Heavy Brocade & Gold Thread Moroccan Caftan

This caftan is an amazing example of the quality of textiles coming out of Morocco in the 1960s, though it may even be older then that. It would have been hand made and is a beautiful combination of brocade and gold thread.The design is a classic silhouette that pairs a finely woven brocade with hand done embroidery work and gold metal thread woven through the design. A deep burnt orange thread is interspersed with real metal gold thread and this surrounds little medallions of hand embroidered flowers. The edges are all finished with a heavy gold braiding and the front has a row if tightly spaced gold button and loops. It is very heavy - if it weighs less then ten pounds when I box it up to ship I will be shocked. The cut is loose and easy, it just slips over the head and has a notched neckline for a bit of skin to peek through. Once on the weight balances nicely but it is a heavy textile. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a light beige cotton and slips over the head to wear. Braided buttons and loops at the neck and on each cuff. Very heavy and appears entirely hand made. The cut will allow it to fit on just about any size but probably best on a med-lrg.
