The Caftan or Kaftan (qftan) is a variation of a robe or tunic that has been worn for thousands of years by many different cultures. This article of clothing is often worn as an overdress or coat, usually with long sleeves and a length that reaches the ankles.
Originally from ancient Mesopotamia, it was worn by many middle-eastern ethnic groups. Many different styles and names vary from culture to culture and have been considered a symbol of royalty in some cultures.
