Initially launched late last year, the hugely popular Indian Ikat collection from Yogamatters, with its unique Ikat weaving, is back in stock after selling out completely in just a matter of weeks. What’s more, a new spring Ikat collection will be launched this May.
Ikat weaving has a rich heritage, dating back thousands of years as a traditional textile used in South East Asia and South America. Ikat refers to the intricate dyeing process whereby bundles of yarn are wrapped tightly together and dyed repeatedly to create the desired pattern. Once dyed and dried, the yarns are painstakingly lined up by the weaver on the loom to form the unique pattern. Yogamatters used this meticulously detailed design process to create the Yogamatters Ikat collection, which features five popular products: Eye Pillow, Buckwheat Bolster, Round Meditation Cushion, Zabuton and Carry All Kit Bag. Yogamatters has been working with a trusted partner in India for more than ten years to produce socially conscious products with care.
