Handwoven Ikat Cotton - Twilight Blue


Regular price Sale price £3.00

A fascinating ikat fabric with a medley of shades from white and blues to purples. The yarns have been spun, dyed and woven by hand. It is full of character with a patterned stripe that runs horizontally across the cloth. 

Price is per metre. Multiple quantities will be cut in a continuous length.

Fabric Description

"Ikat" refers to the dyeing technique, where resist dyes applied to the yarns create the pattern once woven into cloth. You can learn more in our blog article here.

It is a standard shirt weight with some opacity, so it does not need to be lined. The fabric is breathable and warm on the skin. It is smooth and soft with a light drape, so it is delicious as clothing - skirts, drawstring trousers, jackets - but will also work for soft furnishings and homewares.

Pair with sustainable buttonsnatural elastics and organic cotton threads in PurpleSlate Blue or Indigo, with contrast top-stitching in Ice Blue or White.

Ethical and Sustainability Considerations:

The cotton fabric is handwoven on wooden looms by artisans from Chiangmai. The cotton fibre used for this fabric is spun and woven within a small artisan community. The fibres are 100% natural and biodegradable. As this fabric is handmade, the process uses virtually no energy or carbon footprint.

Each metre of fabric takes approximately four hours to weave, and an entire bolt takes over a month. Despite the traditional handwork methods used to create the textile, the design is timeless and seamlessly fits today's contemporary style. 

Suitable For:

Bags, Blinds, Curtains & Pelmets, Hand Sewing, Scarves & Neckwear, Machine Sewing, Napkins, Shirts, Soft Furnishings, Spring & Autumnal Skirts & Dresses, Table Runner, Tea Cosy & Door Stops, Toys, Trousers & Shorts.

Sewing Experience: ideal for novice sewers.

To care for your product:

Suitable for washing machines below 30°C and tumble dryers. To protect fabrics for longer, hand wash in cool water. Suitable for irons med-hot temperature.

Turn the machine down to 30 degrees for a more environmentally friendly wash. In Europe alone, if every household turned its washing temperature down to 30°C, we could save 12 million tons of CO2 a year.

We also recommend line drying as this reduces energy usage and looks after your textiles for longer (as they don't get bashed around in your tumble dryer). Use a mild detergent, light botanical refresher or even steam the item you've made in your bathroom after a shower.

Natural handwoven fabrics tend to shrink 3-5%, so please wash this textile before you create any products that will require washing at a later date.

Wholesale And Restocking

Stepped pricing is available on 25 metres and over, so please inquire if you are looking for large amounts. We love working with smaller brands: purchase one metre and upwards directly from the website and email us for wholesale quantities for bulk production when you're ready. We welcome large and small orders from brands of all sizes.

Please note

Please note that refunds are not possible once fabrics have been cut, unless in the unfortunate event that your material arrives damaged. Please order a swatch before purchasing your metre lengths. Please see our Refunds and Cancellation Policy page for full details.

Due to the nature of handwoven and hand-printed fabrics, there can be irregularities in the weave and print, along with variations in batch dye colour. We have quality controlled this fabric. However, there could be minor irregularities that we love and see as normal and charming. If you are unhappy with the material you purchase, please let us know, and we'll do our best to rectify it immediately: info@offsetwarehouse.com.

Beautiful colours

This fabric has lovely, rich colours - just need to be careful about washing as the die runs quite a lot.

Avril McCusker
Lovely material to work with.

I enjoyed working with this fabric. It has substance but is not heavy. It makes the simple blouse pattern look expensive. I used the the Avid Seamstress drop sleeve top pattern. I used a vintage button on the back fastening. I added small slits in the side seams.
