The Kaftan Beachwear: A Best-seller

If our kaftans for the beach are bestsellers, it is thanks to the beauty and authenticity of this iconic oriental garment from which we drew our inspiration.

Bahaar, for example, revisits the institution of coffee, which inspired great designers and designers from around the world, like the Parisian designer Yves Saint-Laurent.

BAHAAR in turn revisits the kaftan to make it a contemporary, comfortable and versatile room.

This approach also allows for the preservation of unique Aboriginal local expertise.

 We invite you to (re) discover with us a brief history of kaftan.

The History of the Kaftan  

The caftan appeared in the Antique pearse, then introduced at the end of the XIth century thanks to the heritage of Andalus.

Known for being a symbol of wealth, the kaftan was once worn by men, finally becoming a ceremonial dress that symbolizes the elegance of the Eastern woman.
