LUXE GODDESS KAFTAN, OMBRÉ - Silk Alternative - Viscose SatinRatna - Mata Dewi
Introducing my new Divine Ombré Goddess Kaftan - hand-painted and blended skillfully in a sophisticated color palette of champagne into deluxe copper.
This is our silk alternative version. We have always set our intention to use less silk or potentially no silk in the future if we can find an alternative that has a similar look and feel and of course a similar result when we paint on it. We were delighted to recently discover and test out this new to market satin/viscose blend. It honestly looks almost identical to silk. I have tried it on a few friends now without them knowing and told them It was silk and they didn’t hat and eyelid. There are 2 small differences that I noticed, but overall the look and feel is the same. The first is that the Viscose satin has slightly more weight than the silk, but to be honest silk is very delicate so I think this is actually a bonus because it makes he Kaftan a little stronger and less susceptible to ripping. The second difference is that the white outline of the wing ( produced from boiling off the wax in the batik process) is not quite as smooth a result as the silk. But, it’s still pretty good. Of course, the pros are that it is so similar to silk, so gorgeous to wear and has that beautiful shine that silk does! No animal had to be harmed in order to make this material and the price point is cheaper than silk! You save $90 when you purchase this silk alternative.
We also want you to know that we proudly hand-make this kimono as a ZERO WASTE product - meaning, we have no off cuts of silk when we make this design! The pattern is made from two rectangle shapes.
Expect a miracle when you wear this Kaftan.
This stunning Kaftan is my signature design. It carries the energy and guidance of Archangel Gabriel. Please visit my about page to understand why.
Each kaftan is individually hand-painted in accordance with ancient batik practices. Any inconsistencies should not be considered as flaws, but as an integral part of the garment that confirm its beautiful hand made process. As colors are individually mixed each time and the way images appear on various screens differ, please allow that actual colors on receiving your item may vary by 10 -20%. Each garment is boiled to complete the batik process of removing the wax and setting the color. Therefore, you will experience no color run or shrinkage with this item.
It’s perfect to float around the house in as
it is so comfortable and luxurious. We know you will keep reaching for it over and over again! Throw it over a bikini to the beach or style casually with a top and denim or a slip, and style also for ceremony or to a wedding. This Kaftan can effortlessly adapt to all occasions!
