Comfortable and elegant, our Petra kaftan will be your new favourite cover-up for the beach or poolside.

Skilled weavers from Ethiopia used a traditional loom to handcraft this garment from Ethiopian cotton and natural dye. The loose fit and lightweight fabric makes it breathable to keep you cool and protected from the sun. It features chic black stripe edging and has been finished with a stylish fringe.

Wear your new cape with pride knowing you have supported Fair Trade business in Ethiopia, and women who have suffered from obstetric fistula.
