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.

Was looking for something to liven up the bench in my kitchen diner and two of these have really done the job. The material is just beautiful and overall quality and workmanship is sublime. Excellent service from start to finish. Not my first purchase and can’t see it being my last.
