Ikat is a very fashionable, age-old fabric originating from India, Asia and Japan. We have taken these century old designs and recoloured, reformatted and had them especially woven for us by our handloom co-op weavers in Andhra Pradesh, India.
Our Ikat fabrics come in three different variations – warp, weft, and double. The warp Ikat is the most common type, and it’s where the individual lengthwise yarns are bunched and dyed before being made into a material. With weft Ikat, the longitudinal weft is resistance-dyed before being woven into a fabric. Lastly, the double Ikat is where both weft and warp are resistance-dyed.
Our Ikat fabric is wider and thicker than normal ikat fabrics used in clothing. We created this fabric so that it would be the perfect weight suitable for curtains, blinds, bedheads and light upholstery. The colours have been designed to complement our coordinating interior ranges and furnishings which have been influenced by the Australian sensibility.
