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 weft threads are dyed and the plastic ties are cut off. 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 2 inch wide plain unpatterned edge along each side. Machine washable. This fabric is suitable for garments, cushion covers and 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, we have two designs by the metre on our Indigo Fabrics page.

Indigo ikat by the metre

Beautiful hand woven indigo dyed organic cotton. Natural, indigo blue dye and hints of other natural dyed yarns in there too (rosewood and annatto) giving some red touches

We are very lucky to still get this lovely fabric each year. All the cotton yarn is dyed by our friend Mon and her brother, who then organise the weavers to weave the fabric on their own home looms. The cloth is woven when the women have finished work on their lychee trees.

Width 94 cms. See more on our indigo fabric page
