All Feel goodies are made from one-off vintage ikat. This makes every item unique. We have chosen every motif, pattern and detail with care. The ikats were carefully selected and re-used to turn them into these beautiful one of a kind accessories and give the antique textile the best and most qualitative new life. Each creation has it’s own imperfections which give the Feel goodies their unique character.
