The African Kaftan - Celebrating Black History Month
During Black History Month, one of the easiest and most vibrant ways to get an African look is by wearing a kaftan. These long, flowing dresses are easy to slip into, and instantly send an African message. They’re affordable, they fit nearly every size, and they’re comfortable for casual wear yet dressy enough for any formal occasion.

The kaftan is widely worn in West Africa, where it is often referred to as a ‘boubou’. It is usually worn with a matching headwrap; called a gele in the Yoruba language. Men also have a version of the ‘boubou’ although it is worn with pants, a shirt, and a kufi cap.

The kaftan became popular in the US during the 1960’s, following the black pride movement. It has become increasingly popular thanks to African immigration, and it is often worn during weddings, graduations or other special occassions.
