Handmade in Italy, our Ikat Hair Accessory is made of silk and cotton ikat with moiré finishing that gives the fabric a sophisticated shimmering effect.
In the ikat making process, the threads are meticulous marked according to pre-set patterns. The different sections are then tie-dyed 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.
