Modern robe in hand-dyed batik with Kaffe Fassett sashing

This modern robe is a store sample, and we went looking for something truly eye-catching. These beautiful hand-dyed and printed batiks were perfect ! We fell in love with the red/orange/yellow smoky tones on the 100% cotton batiks from India. This Modern Robe reflects our goal, as stated in our byline: "Wrap yourself in the fabric you love*."

We looked at dozens of half-yard cuts of fabric for the contrasting sash, until we came across a Kaffe Fassett floral print in taupe.  The smoky yellows and oranges seemed to be a perfect match for the golden swirls in the batik. This striking robe is now proudly displayed on a mannequin in the fabric shop, so that customers can try it on for size.
