Description:

An unusual ikat cotton, a black background with multicolour rectangular details of joy.

Suitable for dresses, tops, and shirts. We would make an Etta or an Ellsworth.

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.

  • 3.5oz, 121gsm.
  • 115cm wide.
  • 100% cotton.
  • Wash at 30 degrees with a non bio detergent. 
  • 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.
  • 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: blk.
