This playful ikat is lightweight and airy with a thatched circle design. Handwoven from 100% cotton, this lovely fabric has a soft hand and textural grain. Full of character, this cotton is naturally breathable. Truly versatile, this woven has a crisp drape that's perfect for a variety of garments like boxy tops, classic button-ups, relaxed fit pants and statement dresses.

The process of Ikat ('ee-kat') dyeing is an intensive resist technique in which the warp and/or weft yarns are bounded and dyed prior to weaving. This technique creates the unique 'blurry' pattern which remains distinct to the ikat weaving traditions. Due to the handcrafted nature of the textile, ikat fabrics may include slubs, ties and colour variation within the yardage.
