A young woman dressed in gray caftan and scarf, her lower face covered with a black embroidered veil, walks along a narrow crooked passageway in the old section, the Old Medina, of Tangier, Morocco. Other pedestrians pass, carrying bundles. Painted wooden doors, their transom windows protected by bars or ironwork, line the street. October 1963.

After having a very long conversation with a my friend today (she has been married to a Moroccan man for years, and recently returned from another trip to see his family in Morocco) here's some more information on this style of moroccan caftan that we see the Lalla's in.

it is called Takshita or Takchita, often worn for weddings. Either wedding caftan or party caftan. Any woman wears them as they range from plain to elaborate.

Hope that helps a little, if you do a search you can find some online for purchase which are affordable.

Many thanks Justine for additional information. Much appreciated. I wonder how long it takes for one hand-made, festive, regal caftan to be made? What kind of threads/materials are in use for embroidery? Is it common for the precious stones to be fasten on the fabric (in a most elaborate version of course)? Thank you. :flower:

To make a caftan ( takchita ) it takes months , it depends of the fabrics too and the kind of the couture you want in it

You know guys u can find takchita , caftan at the public market in morocco but the quality is not that good ...if u know some moroccan people ask them if they know a traditionnal tailor , the quality of the tissue and the couture will be much better than the regular caftan at the public market but u have to know the price IS not the same , much expensive .
by the way , the caftan is different than takchita .
Takchita is a dress with 2 pieces of tissue and the caftan is 1 piece.

Thank you all for those beautiful pictures. The dresses are absolutely beautiful. So rich and colorful, they seem to represent the culture of Morocco. Thank you for all the information about them too. The bridal dress is beautiful.

I know so little about this family, it would be unseemly for me to comment on anything except to say all of their clothing shown is so very beautiful and elegant. What a lovely way to be able to dress like that, even if one does have to learn a certain way to hold the dress while walking.....far preferable to seeing some royals (european mainly) wear tight short dresses which show way too much when getting in and out of cars.........

the caftan is indeed a very beautiful dress, but I wonder why the Moroccan princesses don't wear the Berber dress from time to time, it is a very beautiful dress, and the Berber designs are sublime, they would be able to adopte also the silver jewelleries, it is an extremely elegant garment and that gives proud style to the woman who carries it
