The vibrant red ikat used in this clutch was hand woven and hand dyed by Linda, and this is one of just 13 unique pieces deriving from her ikat. Each clutch is lined, with pockets, and will come from a different position on the ikat so may not be a direct representation of the clutch pictured.

Made with love in Indonesia
The artisan, Linda, is a proud Dayak woman and a member of our partner women's weaving Cooperative, Jasa Menenun Mandiri, in West Borneo. The Dayak people are Indigenous to Borneo and encompass over 200 different ethnicities, all of which have their own customs, dialects and cultures.
Tiang bekurung are the main poles used to hold up the Rumah Betang – a longhouse built by Dayak weaving communities in West Borneo. When a longhouse is being constructed, the community often carries out a ceremony to bless the house once the first tiang kurung is erected.
Caring for your ikat
Your ikat can be spot cleaned with warm water however for the best results, we recommend you dry clean your product when necessary. Please also ensure it is not exposed to direct sunlight for long periods as this will cause the colours to fade.
