This fabric is currently sold out, but we expect to have it back in stock in a few weeks.

Indigo blue and white ikat weave.  This is mostly a beautiful indigo blue with white fleck throughout. A summer weight dressmaking cotton. Suitable for breezy tops, dresses and loose fitting trousers. 

Ikat is a resist dyeing technique where the threads used for weaving are dyed beforehand.  The Ikat threads are bound in a pattern so that the threads covered by the binding ‘resist’ the dye, creating a design.  The more binding done before weaving, the more complicated the pattern.

  • 100% cotton.

  • Indian cloths are sometimes susceptible to irregularities in the weave, this is all part of their charm and are not classed as flaws.
