From where did these Kaftans enter the fashion industry? Dating back to 600 B.C., the story of this timeless elegance began in the arid region of Mesopotamia, beating the hot climate and reflecting an individual’s social status. Then, the Ottomans elevated its eminence by crafting intricate embroideries.

Kaftans gained popularity in India during the Mughal era, and Kashmiri artisans infused the region’s famous aari embroidery, regiming aari-embroidered kaftan dresses for women. All the kaftans at Shop Nama: Stay are hand-crafted with Aari embroidery by our skilled Kashmiri artisans.
