A mottled trip grey ikat weave. A slightly heavier summer cotton, the texture of a canvas but soft. Suitable for tops, dresses, shirts, and loose fitting trousers. 140cm wide.
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.
Chief Grey is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: Heron and Strides.
