Caring for your Kaftan


Our hope is for your Resort & Rustic Ritual Kaftan to be part of your wardrobe for many years to come, protecting each garment will extend it's precious lifecycle, and ensure your much loved garment remains in great condition, if well looked after.

At Resort & Rustic Rituals, most of our kaftans are crafted with embellishments and delicate lux fabrics, attention and care should be taken. Our garments are handcrafted from either 100% pure silk or viscose/silk, satin, polyester or a combination of a soft blend of Bemberg (80%) and silk (20%) This exquisite material is cut in a highly flattering draping effect, which falls beautifully and effortlessly on every shape and body type.  This luxurious silk blend is also breathable, moisture-absorbing, supremely cool and comfortable for our Australian climate.

Hang your Resort & Rustic Ritual Kaftan up on a padded hanger to freshen in-between wears. Our kaftans are loose fitting and will not require washing after each wear. Refreshing your Kaftan is recommended by hanging in an airy place. We do not recommend machine washing your Kaftan. All silk pieces should be hung on padded hangers for protection of the fabric.

Some of our plain garments (without beading) can be hand washed with a very mild detergent, iron gently or laid flat to dry and keep away from direct sunlight. 

If you wish to lightly press your garment please only use the silk setting on your iron and place a material over the top. Do not iron directly onto silk or viscose crepe fabrics. Do not press, steam or heat the embellishments on either side of the fabric.  


Due to the delicate nature of our garments, we recommend a spot dry clean only. Spot dry clean means that the garment is only dry cleaned where the spots or stains have occurred, this protects the fabric or embellishments from falling off.


Our Kaftan embellishments are all applied individually by hand. This ensures that each garment is unique, and no two the same. Please note, some crystals may come off with wear. These should not be considered flaws but the nature of their hand made beauty. 

Please take care when wearing any jewellery to avoid snagging. Be aware that hand beading is very delicate and can unravel at times. This is not a fault of the garment. 

If necessary, spot dry clean washes may be done & it is normal that some crystals may dislodge. A spot dry clean is recommend by a trusted and reputable dry cleaner specialist.

Spot Dry Clean Wash Instructions:
  • Turn kaftan inside out
  • Always use cold water
  • Use a very small amount of a mild liquid detergent
  • Light spot dry wash, taking care not to rub the embellishments (Do not leave soaking as you will risk embellishments from dislodging)
  • Rinse spot thoroughly (do not twist or wring garment)
  • Lay garment flat, out of direct sunlight 
  • Once completely dry, hang garment up on a padded hanger for protection
