To make IKAT fabric, the threads are dyed before weaving using an ancient tie dye technique instead of printing or painting a design on after fabric is woven.
Just imagine the difficulty the weaver has lining up the dyed yarns so the design appears perfectly in the finished fabric. The more colours and complicated patterns IKAT has, the more difficult it is to weave perfectly hence the blurriness.
We love the fact that none of the IKAT fabrics are exactly the same and it has imperfections in the patterns. In our opinion this only shows someone put such an effort making this amazing fabric and only adds to its uniqueness.
Beautiful little lumbar pillow
Both the quality of fabric and sewing are lovely! The ikat cushion cover I ordered actually exceeded my expectations, and it also arrived in sustainable packaging. I'd most definitely order from this shop again!
