We buy this beautiful cloth from a market in Bali where the weavers sell the cloth they've made on their home looms. The technique of ikat weaving is famous in many parts of the world, and is part of a long textile tradition.

The weft threads are first carefully measured out and then bound tightly into sections with plastic string. These are colour coded to form a pattern. The weft threads are dyed, then some of the ties removed and each exposed section is dyed in turn. Finally the patterned weft threads are woven into a plain warp on a treddle loom. Ikat has a characteristic shimmering effect.

The fabric is 1 metre wide and has a plain strip approx 5 cms. along each side. Machine washable. This fabric is suitable for garments, cushion covers and light lined curtains.

We sell our ikat by the metre or in  fat quarter sets and smaller sample sets. And if you're looking for indigo ikat, it's on our Indigo Fabrics page.
