Beach Glass Sheer Cotton Ikat Woven
Hand woven and hand over-dyed sheer ikat cotton. From India where textile traditions continue. Multi colored, but the overall tone is darkish celadon blue/green/gray, reminds me of the color of beach glass. Sheer, light weight, similar to voile, but with a crisper hand and drape. Very beautiful. Right for a shirt, tunic, top, dress or skirt. Right for layering over other fabrics and garments too.
I love working with my supplier, a woman, who is carrying on her family tradition in the fabric business. She lives in the US, goes back and forth to the factory in India, and is always coming up with new concepts, colors and designs for traditional Indian fabrics. The fabrics are made to order in India, and are shipped directly to us from there. These fabrics have a beauty and integrity that reflect the presence of the hands that made them. She keeps inviting me to come to India with her. Maybe one of these days!
Hand launder and air dry. Test a swatch if you want to put it in the washer/dryer.
