Yogamatters designed the Spring Ikat collection with the season in mind, wanting to offer a lighter and brighter range that represented the colours of spring and the optimism that these colours bring. The yellow colourway represents the sun starting to shine combined with the green that represents the new life sprouting around us. Initially launched late last year, the hugely popular Indian collection, with its unique Ikat weaving, sold out in a matter of weeks.
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.
The Spring Ikat Collection includes the Eye Pillow, Buckwheat Bolster and Round Meditation Cushion in the refreshed Spring Ikat print, along with the Spring Ikat Surya Yoga Mat Bag.
The Ikat Collection and the Spring Ikat Collection are both available online now at www.yogamatters.com
