We conducted a qualitative study on caftan consumption in Casablanca, Morocco. We show that Moroccan women use their caftan to express different identities through distinct life stages. Our findings suggest an additional level of meanings, distinctive meanings, and extend prior research on the role of meanings in intra-gender relationships.
