The colourful, checked ikat fabric for our Forte Ikat Wrap Dress and Jacket will be hand woven, precisely tied and carefully hand-dyed by master weavers in Southern India, where the technique has been passed down from one generation to the next. The characteristic haziness of the pattern is a pleasing result of this time consuming, intricate process whereby pre-dyed warp and weft yarns are lined up to form the desired pattern. Each Forte Ikat Wrap Jacket will be made to order. Easy, swingy cut with wide sleeves – to be turned back or as you will. Wrap over at the front with a fixed tie to one side. Contrast lining and stitching details at the edges.
Machine wash. 100% cotton.
Made in India.
An age-old and complex technique of patterning cloth, whereby the pattern is pre-determined by tie-dyeing the yarn prior to weaving. The characteristic haziness of the pattern that emerges is a pleasing result of this hand process.
