The beautiful ikat used in this bag was hand woven and hand dyed by an artisan in Rote Island, through traditional techniques that use natural, plant-derived dye. Each bag is lined and will come from a different position on the ikat and may not be a direct representation of the bag pictured.
This bag is just one of just seven unique pieces deriving from this ikat. Read more about this piece by clicking on Additional Info + below.

Important note for all ikat products on each product page
The People’s Fabric predominantly sources ikat from various villages in West Borneo, with occasional guests from other regions – the textiles are made by a variety of different people who use a variety of different dyes so each piece is unique. The complex process of making ikat requires high levels of skill, as each is handmade and hand dyed. Because of this, there may occasionally be slight imperfections in the artwork – whilst these are minor, we believe this simply contributes to each ikats story.
Caring for your ikat
Your ikat can be spot cleaned with warm water. Please note that the ikat’s colour will fade when exposed to direct sunlight for long periods.
