Our Margilan Vest pays homage to the art of Uzbek ikat weaving in Margilan, Uzbekistan.
Made of silk and cotton ikat, with moiré finishing that gives the fabric a sophisticated shimmering effect. It comes with a copper tone zip, two front facing patch pockets and a small hook below the left pocket, that adds a casual touch to an otherwise very elegant silk top.
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. 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 at a family-size workshop in the Veneto region, in Italy.
