A beautiful black and white ikat weave. A summer weight dressmaking cotton. 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.
Suitable for breezy tops, dresses and loose fitting trousers.
The white lines vary in size from selvedge to selvedge.
Indian cloths are sometimes susceptible to irregularities in the weave, this is all part of their charm and are not classed as flaws.
