Hand-loomed can be refined, it can also be rustic. The weavers vary weight and texture through  using different warp and weft threads.

Ikat

Accessories made from hand-loomed cotton ikat

Ikat is a technique of weaving pre-dyed threads, usually the weft threads. It is found throughout SE Asia and in Cambodia was exclusively done with silk. Incredibly intricate designs were created and all had meaning. Wedding dresses and formal clothes for men and women were always made from silk ikat. Due to a decline in popularity in silk for clothing weavers were encouraged to try weaving cotton ikat.  Kravan House stocks a range of products made from cotton ikat including accessories and homewares.
