Ikat is made by tying and dying strands of yarn, and then weaving them; which creates the pattern you see. Slight variations in the dyed strands give it the classic ikat look. Without hard borders, the designs feel a little freer and looser while still being completely geometric and pleasing. Yarn dyes are one of my absolute top fabrics; it means you can use either side of the fabric (yay, reversible!), and you don't have the same fading issues that prints sometimes suffer from.
This is a looser weave shirting, it's wonderfully soft and lofty.

Fabric is priced and sold by the 1/4 metre. We cut multiple 1/4 metres continuously. For example; 2 units is 1/2m, 3 units is 3/4m, 4 units is a full metre, 5 units is 1.25m. A single 1/4 metre will be cut as a fat quarter, unless you request a skinny quarter. Fat Quarters are half the width of the fabric x 0.5m, whereas Skinny Quarters are the full width of the fabric x 0.25m. We do this so you can order just as much fabric as you need, to decrease fabric wastage.
