STORY BEHIND THE PRINT:
The Dashiki has a rich and fluid history that interweaves continents, cultures, and design. The cut of the fabric originated in West Africa as a flowing wide sleeve robe called the grand boubou. The textile design is an indigenous Indonesian pattern, copied and sold to Africans by the Dutch. The Dashiki grew in popularity in Africa, and then spread to North America during the African-American civil rights movements of 1960's as a symbol of self-affirmation for African-Americans and a garment associated with the love and peace hippie movement. It is now a mainstay of global bohemian fashion.
Dress measures about 60" in length from shoulder to hem.
