Midnight Shark Short Kaftan/Sundress

Our Midnight Shark Short Kaftan is both a fabulous dress for those warm summer days and nights and a super comfortable beach cover-up. The organic cotton was hand block printed using nontoxic dyes by a group of amazing artisans in Jaipur, India. We employ ethical, green practices that are kind to workers and the environment.

2022 Update: This year's short kaftans are made with a slightly thicker organic cotton to eliminate the risk of see-thoroughness when you wear them out and about and not just as a beach cover-up.

Your kaftan purchase will support the efforts of WildAid, a nonprofit conservation organization that aims to end the illegal wildlife trade of products such as shark fin, elephant ivory, and rhino horn. An estimated 100 million sharks are killed every year and fins from up to 73 million sharks are used for shark fin soup. Some shark populations have declined up to 98% in the last 15 years. Given that sharks are the top predator in the marine food chain, this can have a huge impact on the ecosystem as other species are not adequately regulated. Via celebrity endorsements and large media campaigns, WildAid is raising awareness about the significant decline in the shark population. Due to WildAid's efforts, there has been a 50-70% reduction in China's consumption of shark fin soup.  Read more about sharks. 

Colors: Black shark fin print on a navy blue background with dark pink stitching around the neck, at the top of the pockets, and around the hem.

Size: One size. Length = 32 in, Width across shoulders = 32 in, Width across bust = 22 in

PLEASE NOTE that this kaftan was printed by hand so colors may vary and little imperfections should be expected. The layout of the design may not be symmetrical on the dress. This is again due to it being handmade. Thank you for your understanding.

Care: Wear and wash often for an even softer feel! You can hand wash or machine wash your kaftan in cold or warm water. Gentle dry. No bleach. Warm steam iron.
