Ikat is a unique textile dyeing technique. Traditional weavers use a painstakingly slow resist-dyeing process, in which bundles of threads are bound together with a tight waterproof wrapping to restrict spreading. Either the warp or weft is then dyed to create beautiful patterns. The bindings can be altered and may be dyed again with multiple colours to produce elaborate, multi-coloured patterns. When the dyeing is finished the bindings are removed and the threads are woven into fabric. 'Double Ikat' involves dyeing both the warp and the weft, and is considered the finest form of ikat, requiring the most precise skills and patience. Tremendous amounts of labour and experience are required, resulting in a high-quality, luxurious and unique fabric.
* Soul fabrics may show colour variations, loose threads, tiny slubs, snags or unevenness that are characteristic of natural fibre textiles. These variations should in no way be considered flaws or defects as they do not affect the functionality of the carrier. It is the nature of the fabric and, these imperfections highlight its natural beauty and uniqueness.
