I'm always looking for new ways to use ikat fabric because it truly is my favorite! this outfit is so stunning with a multicolor border and is inspired by a gloomy day that turns bright quickly thus revealing natures masterpiece in the form of a rainbow....I can make this outfit in any color scheme so just email me to discuss color changes if you desire.
Ikat refers to a traditional dyeing technique used to pattern textiles, where the thread is dyed prior to being woven, which gives rise to Ikats distinctive ethnic patterns. The handloom fabric is particularly durable and is perfect for "wash and wear" daily use.
These Ikats are dyed and woven in small batches, and the design always changes a bit from batch to batch. I've been working with Ikats for over a decade now, and love the patterns. It's a near universal weaving style common to many world cultures. Likely, it is one of the oldest forms of textile decoration.
