Ikat is a resist dyeing technique where the threads used for weaving are dyed beforehand. The Ikat threads are bound in a pattern so that the threads covered by the binding ‘resist’ the dye, creating a design. The more binding done before weaving, the more complicated the pattern. Ikat cloths are prone to slubs and often have ties in the cloth where one weaver ends and another begins, the ties will be on the wrong side of the cloth and we will endeavour to point this out on your packing slip if we see any. These are not flaws.
Suitable for dresses, tops, shirts, and looser fitting trousers or shorts. Please request a sample if you need to check the colour or weight.

For the first couple of washes, place the fabric in the washing machine drum at 30 or 40 degrees with a handful of table salt to help fix the dye. Wash separately.
