Malaysia Collection: Monsoon Print Belted Long Silk Caftan - Few Made!

3 reviews

Eco friendly caftans and tunics inspired by the ocean, made on main street. Ethically sourced and locally made in Los Angeles.

Our Monsoon Silk Caftan is back!  This beautiful black and white print is truly a special piece with a special story.  We were privileged to watch Suria of Suria Artisan Batik paint hand-paint this fabric one delicate wax stroke at a time, all while listening to the sound of the gentle rain and wild gibbons just outside her rainforest studio.  (Watch Intan paint this beautiful print below.)

Aptly named Monsoon, this print is inspired by the seasonal rains in Malaysia and  each piece is painted 4 meters at a time by hand.  Light and easy, this silk caftan is as fluid as Intan's painting.  Made in our classic caftan silhouette, it comes with a removable belt and can be worn 4 ways:  belted above the waist empire-style, tied at the natural waist, looped through the top and bottom loops and tied in the back for a clean line, or with no belt at all. Trust us, this is one you will want in your caftan collection now and forever.  

Insider tip:  Check the sizing tab above as our belted caftan run a bit more narrow across the chest.

Beautiful & A couple things to note

This is a really beautiful piece. Its flattering, it feels amazing to the touch, and the print is gorgeous. A couple things to note: - Each one of these pieces is slightly different so you won't get the exact same print as you are seeing in the picture. Your piece may have more white or more black. I love that each piece is unique (or created in very small batches) but it could have been nice to know this from the start. - I wish there was an "tall" option. If you are tall and thin like I am (at 6'2") going up in size is the only way to get extra length but this becomes impractical if you want it to fit correctly on the rest of your body. At my height this hits mid ankle rather than at the bottom of the ankle as pictured, and as I would prefer. I love this piece overall, but I am thinking about whether I should purchase additional pieces from Ocean and Main or consider purchasing from a similar company that offers custom lengths. At this price point I think it is reasonable to expect that degree of customization. But these considerations aside, this piece is beautiful and special.

Love this Kaftan

absolutely obsessed with this Kaftan. Truly unique appearance and texture, the fabric has a strong breathable texture to it and makes me feel as if I can wear it on my trips to the rainforest without the humidity and heat bothering me which is very unique for a silk fabric. The pattern is lovely. I will be posting photos on my Instagram under my Instagram user name frogs_winny or #oceanandmain. I will take the photos on my own without being paid and my review is completely on my own. None of my photos are edited so you will get a very realistic viewpoint on what this Kaftan looks like in person. After buying this Kaftan I will now be buying many more to take with me on my travels.


Thank you so much for your kind words and honest, thorough review! We are so happy you love your caftan look forward to seeing your travel photos!

Edmond, OK


So Beautiful!
