Merchant & Mills Blue and White Ikat is a white and indigo blue ikat weave. An extremely soft and wearable cloth with a beautiful drape.
It's a perfect lightweight cotton for spring/summer. It would work well on any dress or skirt that needs to be gathered or a lovely breezy blouse.
Indian cloths are sometimes susceptible to irregularities in the weave, this is all part of their charm and are not classed as flaws.
Ikat is a resist dyeing technique where the threads used for weaving are dyed beforehand. The Ikat threads are bound in a pattern so that the threads covered by the binding ‘resist’ the dye, creating a design. The more binding done before weaving, the more complicated the pattern.
