Island Reef Ikat - Indian Cotton


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

Ikat is a resist dying 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 before weaving the more complicated the pattern.

Please note 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 these are not flaws.
