Front : VELVET IKAT / Back : SILK IKAT
The ikat threads are individually dyed using natural vegetable and natural pigment based dyes. The dyed threads are then woven by hand to create our patterned fabric.
<Specifics of Ikat production>
*Our natural dyed threads are woven into very large originally patterned fabric segments. The length of each individual segment can measure up to 30 centimeters (approx. 12 inches) long and up to 45 centimeters (approx. 18 inches) wide. From this very large segment of patterned fabric, individual pillow cases are then cut. The pattern on individual pillow cases can vary slightly due the location of the cut.
*The white line on the pattern proves the hand made woven work, means the woven process restart with new yam of silk.
*The yellowish shades are not defects; it’s because the fabric was tea washed. This washing process is a sign that the Ikat fabrics are made in artisanal manner.
The pillow cases are sold without insert.
