Description:

These remnant pieces are end of rolls that are over a metre long, they are not flawed in any way. The 5% off has already been added – so the price you see is the final price.

An off white cloth with an indigo blue Ikat weave square.

Suitable for dresses, tops, shirts, and looser fitting trousers or shorts. We would make a pair of Winnies or an Edie.

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.

  • 114cm wide.
  • 100% cotton.
  • Square size - 1.5cm.
  • Pattern repeat - 7.5cm
  • 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.
  • 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. This will help fix the dye to prevent it running.
  • As our Indian cloth is handmade, they are susceptible to irregularities in the weave or print, this is all part of their charm and are not classed as flaws.
  • As all computer monitors show colours differently, we recommend ordering a sample of the cloth to check it is the right colour and weight for your project.
  • Thread match Gutermann Sew All 802.
