HAND WOVEN COTTON IKAT
A lightweight, indigo-dyed Ikat cotton, fine and robust. Ideal for spring/summer tops, shirting, etc.
A lightweight, handwoven cotton fabric in blue with white checks, created using the Ikat technique, is perfect for spring/summer tops, shirting, etc. It is composed of 100% cotton and dyed with natural indigo. This handwoven cotton is crafted in Bangladesh, where the Ikat technique involves carefully binding hanks of yarn at intervals, submerging them in a magical indigo dye bath. Once dried, the bound areas are unleashed, revealing the original white that resisted the dye, creating a perfect blend of indigo and white where the dye could not penetrate. This handwoven cotton is both fine and robust in aesthetics.
