Indian Ikat Cotton, Show Down
Denim blue, white and red ikat weave.
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. Ikat cloths are prone to slubs and often have ties in the cloth where one weaver ends and another begins. These are not flaws.
A slightly heavier summer cotton, the texture of a canvas but soft. Suitable for dresses, tops, shirts, and looser fitting trousers or shorts.
