:: THE PRINT ON OUR ONE PIECES ::
For many generations the Indonesian people produce ‘ikat’, a very complex woven fabric that is highly valued in Indonesian society. This literal piece of art once was used for marital exchange and to define the networks of social relationships.
We have selected this traditional ikat cloth to process the beauty of the antique textile in our one pieces and printed this motif on high quality recycled nylon/spandex.
Each One piece is hand printed and the handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in colour and design.
The print on this One piece comes from Flores
Flores is a big island in Eastern Indonesia. The ikat pattern we’ve selected for your product is originally from Sikka-district in East Flores. The Sikka people produce very complex fabrics for exchange in marriage and to define the network of social relationships.
