In regions with a warm climate, it is worn as a light-weight, loose-fitting garment. In some cultures, the kaftan has served as a symbol of royalty. 

Designs are Inspired by the Maasai a Nilotic ethnic group inhabiting northern, central and southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. Who are famous and easily recognizable thanks to their traditional robe, the Shuka; it is a bright-colored cloth, predominantly red, wrapped around their lean and slender frames.
