Traditionally, IKAT design is a long and labor intensive technique. The beauty, then, lies in the irregularity, the surprise and inconsistent pattern that emerges. The frustration lies in the time and cost involved. We've been working with our hand weaving society to implement new technology to compliment their skills. Digital warp printing is one of them.

Once the warp is printed, it's tied to the loom where our weavers skillfully hand weave this pattern into a modern day stripe. 

We've produced a larger scale stripe called Cocomaloo - great for large sofa's and bigger projects and smaller scale stripe called Junkanoo.  This is a wonderful upholstery weight fabric and light enough for drapery. 

100% cotton. 16 colorways.
