Gorgeous Vintage Ikat from Sulawesi Indonesia
Made from hand-spun cotton, natural indigo and earthy red dyes. Circa 1930-1950s. Ikat means to knot or bind and is a dye-resist technique. The cotton is first knotted, then dyed many times, then woven. They often take up to two years to make due to the labor and time intensive dying process. Ikats are made all over the world, but I AM STOKED about this one because in Indonesia they truly refined the techique. This is a great example of a very traditional 3-color motif. In excellent condition for the age.
Dimensions: 3.9 by 5.3 feet
