Fabric Write up :
Ikat is a fabric that is crafted by resist-dyeing the yarns before weaving the fabric. After the yarns are repeatedly dyed, it is woven into cloth resulting in beautiful patterns on the fabric.
The beauty of ikat is the ‘blurriness’ that results on the fabric. The weavers are extremely skilled and work efficiently on a handloom to create the fabric.
The handloom Khesh weave has been very close to our hearts building our sustainability story stronger.
The exploration and understanding started when the team visited West Bengal’s Birbhum district. The weavers there collect cotton saree’s and the women patiently tear the sari into multiple long strips.
The thin strips are then incorporated into new fabric. The weaver sits intently on his Hand Loom machine twisting and adding the thin strips of the sarees to fresh warp threads, to create the new and up-cycled Khesh weave.
The fabric develops stripes that can sometimes differ in color meter to meter. The “beautiful irregularity” is precisely its uniqueness.
