  • Ikat weaving

    The Ikat technique is a resist dyeing process applied on the yarns prior to dyeing and weaving the fabric. It starts by binding the designed pattern on the weaving yarns with tight wrapping. After repeatedly dipped the bound yarns in natural indigo to reach the dark blue colour, the bindings are then removed to create the pattern directly on the handloom.

    Natural Indigo Dye

    To get a deep dark blue colour, the weaving yarns are dipped about 10 to 20 times in a vat of indigo. The more the yarns are dipped in the natural indigo, the darker the blue colour will get. During the dyeing process, no chemicals are added. General wear, use and wash will fade the colour and each product will gain its unique appearance by time.

  • Open weave The open weave is a plain weave with an open texture that is created on the two treadle hand loom. The weaving yarns must be thickened with rice powder before weaving to gain extra volume. After the textile is woven, the rice powder gets removed by soaking the textile in water. The yarns regain the original thickness and gaps appear between the yarns that create the open weave. The open weave can be worn throughout the seasons. During the chilly spring evenings, the airy texture gives a comfortable warmness whilst the air between the gaps create extra warmth for the cold months.

  • Hand-looming Our artisans have a long tradition of hand weaving textiles, the weaving techniques have been passed from generation to generation and from mothers to daughters. Each community has its own special weave technique. The raw cotton used for the weaving yarns is cultivated in their own communities or purchased at the local market when the cotton is in short supply. The handspun yarns are twisted by hand which results in irregularity in thickness. These yarns have a harsh hand feel, but they will gain softness after general wear like raw denim.
