Ikat dyeing is a meticulous technique that creates patterns on textiles, and has variations all over Asia. The double-ikat is a pattern-on-pattern execution, and requires skill and experience. We've translated this testament to skill, patience, and craftsmanship to bamboo and buri. There are over 2,000 bamboo beads strung through to create the mesmerizing, textile-like patterns that come to life in the illumination of light. Please allow 30-45 days for delivery on your orders.
