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 global 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
Whilst ikat can be spot cleaned with warm soapy water, 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.
