COTTON IKAT • Indigo & White 38.00/metre
By Merchant & Mills $38.00 per metre.
Indigo and white ikat weave.
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. These are not flaws.
Suitable for dresses, tops, shirts, and looser fitting trousers or shorts. Suitable patterns: The Tea House top & dress, The Wildwood Wrap Dress, Ellis & Hattie, The Dress Shirt, The Trapeze, The Camber Set, The Factory, The Skipper.
Wash at 30 degrees. Do not tumble. Please allow for a shrinkage of 3-5%.
