Our Margilan Vest pays homage to the art of Uzbek ikat weaving in Margilan, Uzbekistan.
The vest is made of cotton ikat. It comes with 2 front facing patch pockets, a copper tone zip, and a small hook under the left pocket.
In the ikat making process, the threads are meticulous marked according to pre-set patterns. The different sections are then tie-dyed according to precise patterns. According to the complexity of the pattern and the number of colours, the tie-dye process is repeated several times. The threads are then handwoven on a four or six-shaft treadle loom. The fabrics irregularities reflect the handmade nature of the entire process and are part of the textile’s beauty. Click here to find out more about how ikat is made.
The fabric is sourced directly from Margilan, Uzbekistan. The vest is designed, hand-cut and made in Italy at a family-size workshop in the Veneto region, in Italy. Each piece has its unique patterns.
Lose fit, one size. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like the vest in a different size or fabric colour.
