Woven Wizardry

Ikat is an extremely tricky process which produces a unique fabric. Most other fabrics are woven and then dyed, but in ikat the threads are dyed before being woven into cloth. Threads are bundled, tied with a dye–resistant material, and then dyed. The process can be repeated for more colors and complexity. For single ikat only the warp threads undergo this treatment, and the weft are left natural or dyed a solid color. In double ikat both warp and weft threads are bundled and dyed. The goal is to have a planned design come together in the woven piece. If successful, ikat produces designs with a characteristic feathery edge. This look is so prized it is often copied on machine–printed cloth, but there is no substitute for the real thing.

Great top
Sep 20, 2023  |  By Suze
This top fits just right. I usually take a medium in tops, and I ordered a medium in this one. It's a bit roomy - I'm large in the chest and a medium fits fine - but will shrink a little in the wash (I know b/c I bought the same one in green and that's what happened) and after drying it fits perfectly. It has a wonderful drape that you can't really see from the picture. A solid cotton warm-weather top that is just really comfortable and cute. I've been wearing it most every day when I come home from work to take my dog on a walk or work in the garden. Love it.
