1/2M Indian Ikat in Show DownMerchant & Mills
Denim blue, white and red ikat weave. A slightly heavier summer cotton, the texture of a canvas but soft.
Motif is approximately 18 x 8cm. 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.
